One of the Bearded Vultures of the European LIFE project released in Maestrazgo was found dead.
Veterinarians and specialists will perform the necropsy in La Alfranca.
The technical team of the European LIFE program has found this Monday in the Maestrazgo the carcass of one of the two bearded vultures that were part of the project that tries to recover this endangered species in the Iberian System. This is stated by the Foundation for the Conservation of the Bearded Vulture in a press release, in which they indicate that at the end of June the first two specimens of bearded vultures that were part of the LIFE program were received, and that, daily, the technical team has been in charge of documenting their evolution through direct field observation and remote sensing. Therefore, this Monday, seeing that the signal indicated “inactivity”, the team went to the area and found the carcass of the male “Sabino” under a power line owned by the Endesa company. Officials of the Government of Aragon have transferred the carcass to the reference center of Alfranca de Pastriz (Zaragoza), where a team of veterinarians and specialists will perform the necropsy. At present, the results are awaited in order to initiate the corresponding administrative or legal actions.
