Rare Bavarian Bruin: Hunters bag Bruno, the first bear taken in Germany in 170 years

Bruno, a 2-year-old bear that migrated from Italy recently became the first bruin to be seen in the wild in Germany in 170 years. Now, he’s the first to killed there in that time. While Bavarian government officials say they usually welcome the return of predators, Bruno had killed 11 sheep, broken into a chicken pen, and was a danger to the human population, in their estimation. After several weeks of trying to catch the bear alive, authorities gave hunters the green light to take Bruno out.
