'M13' on the Loose in Switzerland 'Bears Learn in a Very Precise Way'

A young brown bear is currently wandering in Switzerland and showing little fear towards humans. Wildlife officials are seeking to retrain the animal before it is too late. In an interview, Joanna Schoenenberger of WWF explains the difficulties of teaching bears to avoid people and why she is optimistic in this case.
Wildlife experts succeeded in tranquilizing wild brown bear "M13" in Switzerland this week, raising hopes that he can be tracked and trained to avoid humans.
