The wildcat in Bondone

5 April 2018

Spotted in December and immortalized by camera trap for bear

The image, taken from a camera trap positioned to monitor the movements of the brown bear, is the first "proof" of its presence in Trentino. It's a historic event that is part of the expansion of the species in the Triveneto area and is causing great interest and curiosity at the national level.

We are talking about the European wildcat (Felis silvestris), a species particularly protected by European legislation (Annex IV of the Habitats Directive 43/92 EEC) and national (Article 2 of Law No. 157/92), the specimen that was immortalized on 5 January on the eastern slopes of Mount Bondone, at about 650 m altitude.
