There have been many shocking events in this eventful 2014, but the one that shocked me most took place in the Northern Italian region of Trentino, where a wild female bear named "Daniza" was hunted and killed in the name of security for the tourists of the region. A minor story, for sure, but one that explains a lot about the behavior of humans and the problems we have when we try to manage our world. (...) In the end, Daniza's cubs may not be able to survive after the killing of their mother, but human cubs will be able to walk in a sanitized and safe forest where they won't risk to be attacked by anything larger and more dangerous than a squirrel.

Cuanto más inteligente es un animal, mayor es también el grado de estupidez relativa que puede alcanzar, de ahí que los humanos se sorprendan tan a menudo de su propia estupidez. La naturaleza no está exenta de cierta ironía.
Ugo Bardi, 2014.
