European Nation's Only Bear Successfully Exterminated

"The male bear, known as M13, was shot dead by wildlife rangers on Tuesday, said Adrian Aeschlimann, spokesman for the Federal Office for the Environment. 'The cull was carried out according to the management plan for bears in Switzerland,' he told AFP on Wednesday."
Imagine that quote in the original German.

Wenn man nur einen Bär nicht vermeiden kann, verdient man gefressen zu werden.

This would be like a country letting its national symbol approach extinction through pesticide use.
