Autopsy on released bear cub found in Fos

France 3/Scoop, Jul 25

A bear cub was found in Fos, Haute-Garonne on 5 July, just a few metres from the main road. He was treated, rehydrated, tagged, and released back into nature. 

In spite of the care and the intensive follow-up of the National Office of hunting and wild fauna, the six-month old bear cub named Mellous did not survive.

The agents had been monitoring the cub, and after several days of reassuring activity, the transmitter sent "a warning signal on July 20, indicating the persistent immobility of the cub".

At this stage, the cause of death is unknown. An autopsy is planned.
