The Council of the Autonomous Province of Trento has invented a new type of bear: the "Harmful Bear"!
In order to satisfy the sadistic instincts of someone, the commissioner for hunting in Trentino has invented, from his deflected imagination a new species of bear.
There aren't " corrupt bears ", " serial killer bears ", "collectors of bones bears," as the commissioner considers who obviously watched too many TV shows! There are, however, deviant human who think to remedy any problems, real or imaginary, using shotgun.
There aren't dangerous bears: the danger of a bear is determined by the misbehavior of human, poorly informed and with bad intentions.
The project "Life Ursus" is so distorted and transformed, becoming "Kill the bear."
Can the European bodies, funders of the project, approve it?
Of course not!
Is perhaps the Trentino an independent republic by all the international organizations?
The decision of the Councillor for hunting in Trentino, approved by the entire council, is senseless, vulgar and wretched.
It is necessary that the petty resolution of the council of the Autonomous Province of Trento has been revoked. The task of the Province is to manage the presence of bears in Trentino, but in the tasks of management is not referred to the killing of these animals!
The Province of Trento should:
- Encourage the strengthening of the bear population in this area.
- To compensate for damage that was already budgeted.
- To educate the population about the necessity of the presence of bears and about the approach to be taken for a natural and peaceful coexistence.
- To inform the economic operators: farmers, managers of facilities, herdsmen and whatnot on how to prevent the damage caused by bears, providing the appropriate tools.
The Province should not and can not encourage the persecution of bears, as it has done in recent years. The Province can not give freedom to the hunters also against the Bears.
This, in fact, as we have already suggested, it seems the real purpose of the resolution that appears as the first concrete step towards permission to bear hunting
We demand to the Council of the Autonomous Province of Trento the revocation of the resolution of killing bears, and we ask to the Council that effectively fulfill its duties to protect the bear.
We demand to the Council of the Autonomous Province of Trento to open a discussion table with LAC and other organizations, in order to agree the most appropriate initiatives to strengthen the presence of bears in Trentino.

DO NOT KILL THE BEARS! Revocation to the resolution that allows to kill the bears in Trentino.
