The capture attempt, implemented in the frame of the Life ARCPROM, was successful and the she-bear is now equipped with a GPS radio-collar. Park biologists and veterinarians will now have the possibility to better monitor her movements but the collar itself will not prevent future...

Here are the extraordinary and funny images “captured” by a camera trap in the Majella National Park showing an Apennine brown bear “dancing” around a tree!

This behaviour of the animal is probably related to its young age and the relative inexperience in terms of anthropogenic...
