Bolzano, July 18 - A young brown bear who was
struck and killed on the Merano-Bolzano freeway near the Swiss
border last year has been embalmed and will go on display in the
Ladin Ursus Ladinicus a San Cassiano Museum in Val Badia.
The two-year-old bear known as M12 who was tagged with an
electronic tracking device was hit as he crossed the road most
likely distracted by his impassioned search for a mate.
M12 came from the same litter as EmmeTredici (M13) - a
popular bear that was followed by wildlife authorities
for months in the mountains straddling Switzerland and Italy and
eventually killed in February for allegedly being a nuisance and
"lack of inhibition when near inhabited areas".
Another of the two bears' brothers, M14, was killed when
hit on the Italian side of the border by an SUV in February.
M12 will be placed next to 'Ursus ladinicus,' a
prehistoric bear who lived in the Val Badia area more than
40,000 years ago.
