      Perdona por contestar sólo ahora, no conocía esta posibilidad de la web…sin análisi genéticas es bastante dificil poder distinguir entre clases de osos sólo en base al tamaño, y por esto no hemos querido poner ninguna información. Y además queríamos hacer algo más bien artístico y no científico. Muchas gracias por escribirnos y perdona por el retraso enorme en contestarte

      Hi William, thank you for the message and sorry for the very late reply…I did not know this function of the web page 🙂
      Bear conservation is going quite well in the Cantabrian Mountains, were the population has increased from ca.50 bears in the ninety to ca.300 now. And this, mostly because of the reduction of poaching and poisoning.
      Cheers

  1. In Europe, part of the problem lies with shepherds ; over the past two centuries, many sheep and goat herders have gradually abandoned the more traditional practice of using dogs to guard flocks, which have concurrently grown larger. Typically, they allow the herds to graze freely over sizeable tracts of land. As brown bears reclaim parts of their range, they may eat livestock as sheep and goats are relatively easy for a bear to kill. In some cases, the shepherds shoot the bear, thinking their livelihood is under threat. Many are now better informed about the ample compensation available and will make a claim when they lose livestock to a bear.

      Thank you for the kind message, you are right and this is even more evident in those area recently occupied by expanding brown bears, where people have lost the correct practices allowing people-bear coexistence. Thanks!
