The second brown bear in a month has been found dead in Palencia, in the Parque Natural de Fuentes Carrionas y Fuente Cobre. Environmental groups have denounced the widespread use of poison in the area. A bear was found dead in the same area in August 2007. An autopsy revealed that it had been poisoned with carbofuran. (El Pais)
