The end of the bear called Bruno!


A dangerous carnivore in a brown national socialist uniform and of the dimensions of the war criminal Goering has finally been tracked and killed in Germany. Thus the bear will avoid a severe trial for having killed some sheep in Bavaria. The skin of the bear has been delivered to Chancellor Angela Merkel who will wear it at the Oktoberfest in Munich. This end is a warning to every animal that wishes to make a clandestine entry into Germany without a passport.

However there is always someone who is ready to justify the cruelty of the bears. Unwillingly I publish his letter.

“Dear Beppe,
I’m writing to point out the umpteenth “act of supremacy” by human beings in relation to the nature that surrounds us.
This time however it wasn’t the country of Pulcinella to supply the spark for the bitter reflections that follow, but the great Germany.
A two-year-old brown bear has been killed tonight in Bavaria. The plantigrad was part of an ambitious Italian project for the reintroduction of the brown bear to the central Alps.
This is a costly project that is trying to reintroduce this native animal that has disappeared. The project is reintroducing bears into adjacent countries where the bear (for not much longer) is still in existence.

The animal killed was one of the sons of a couple that was reintroduced and it was thus the first feeble witness that the project is succeeding. The animal’s death sentence came after the carcasses of some sheep were found. Considering the rarity of the animal there was no danger for man, who for centuries has been living with the plantigrads without mutual dis-harmony.

The most absurd thing is that a group of hunters from Finland were called in. They were accompanied by vets and trained dogs and were to put him to sleep and transfer the animal to a “safer” area. Safer for the animal away from the easy trigger of Teutonic hunters. But the killers got there first. I wonder what’s the point in calling in super-specialised hunters to put him to sleep and at the same time to call in the hunters to kill him.

Now with all the respect for the sheep, but I’d say, could we not have made compensation payments to the sheep farmers and then transfer this poor beast at risk of extinction, into our zones? Just as they have done and are continuing to do for the reintroduction of the wolf in the Parco Nazionale d'Abruzzo. Have you lost a sheep? Here’s 200 Euro… OK I’ll give it to you from my own pocket. An adult wolf that is sexually active is worth much more.

Why has a sheep got value and biodiversity not? Speak to you soon. “

Sorry guys, you're on the wrong track, not the bear, the topic !

Bruno was great, and Bavarian are great, the real issue and let's stop hiding our head in the sand, is that wreck of Prodi and his nuts.

Just think ! Not even able to save a bear, and you put him there to save the nation (because he told you)! That freak minister called Blasted-Sheep (free translation), was just frightened that should he managed to land in Bavaria, he would have been teared appart by Bruno. Remember, Bruno had mutton for breakfast.

Now let see how many tears have you left for yourself.

Next please !

Germans think and advertise themselves as modern and pro-nature people, civilized and not barbarians, but without generalizing, those who decided on the killing of the bear and those who did not do anything about it, including Italians authorities, are all a bunch of ipochrits and barbarians. They don't care less of people and you can figure how much less they care for a poor bear, that I think is better off dead now, so at leat doeas not have to hide anymore from Germans, Austrians and Itallians killers.

Bavaria is as much reliant on income from tourism as from sheep farming. Perhaps all those who regard this act as a barbaric and sad example of the vainglorious nature of much of humankind could scratch Bavaria off their list of holiday destinations, and encourage anyone else they know to do likewise.

We have declared war to mother nature, this is just one of the many results of our arrogance, we kill a bear like a criminal because he only acted on his natural instict, the difference is he killed the sheeps to eat while we killed him because he treatened our profits.
In meantime this world is going in the tube and soon we will be just us and the rocks if we dont manage to kill eachother before, which is very possible.

the bears are paying the price of not being able to adjust to be in a heard or to play soccer

What a sadness! :-(

Such a beautiful animal killed.

I'm wondering WHO has called the Finnish hunters and WHO has called the killers.
