By now the news of Amarena’s death, which was shot on the evening of August 31 with a rifle, has made the rounds in Italy.
Salviamo l’Orso immediately started all the legal procedures, which we hope will ensure a trial that will bring justice to Amarena, the cubs and all those people who have taken the path of coexistence, using electric fences, spreading good practices and respecting the environment.
Amarena’s death brings us so much sadness, so much anger, so much doubt.
We wonder if it is fair that the work and efforts of so many are pulverized by the act of a single person.
We wonder what we need to improve, what mechanism has jammed, what we have lacked.
We wonder what will happen to the Amarena cubs.
Among many questions, one certainty: the wave of solidarity that has swept over us is something real, tangible.
New memberships, donations, offers to volunteers for us and the bears.
To all of you goes our sincerest thanks, now more than ever we needed it….
We will keep you updated on all developments.
