Bear Daniza: her two cubs survived the winter 2014/15

If you recall, back in September 2014, Bear Daniza was supposedly accidentally killed when authorities tried to catch her. Daniza had non-fatally attacked a mushroom picker in the forest surrounding Trento after being surprised by him. Daniza had two young bear cubs with her, that she was protecting. The Trentino is home to a large number of bears.

Claudio Groff, large Carnivore Coordinator of Trento, informed us that both young bear cubs survived the winter 2014/2015 miraculously, considering their young age. We are very happy to hear that, but have asked for more information about both cubs. We hope that they are still alive and have not suffered the fate that killed their mother.

Update: 30.01.2017 Claudio Groff informed us, that the two cubs also survived the summer of 2016. This information will be included in the latest Bear Report of Trentino.
