On Tuesday evening in val Algone, Italy, a female bear in great health condition and weighing 110 kg was captured, radio-collared, and released. This is the second capture of a bear in Autonomous Province of Trento this year, where Forest and Fauna Service is monitoring Trentino bear population in the frame of DINALP BEAR project.
Movement of the bear will now be monitored through GPS localizations, send by a preprogramed electronic device and a GPS transmitter on its radio-collar. The primary focus of its monitoring will be potential interactions with human activities. This knowledge will consequently enable us to set up efficient prevention measures, which will contribute to long-term public acceptance of brown bear on this territory.
