Museum of Man and Nature

The Museum Mensch und Natur (English Museum of Man and Nature) is a German natural history museum. It is occupies part the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, Bavaria.

Bear exhibit

The museum was as of 2006 due to receive the stuffed and mounted body of "Bear JJ1", nicknamed "Bruno" in the German-language press, a brown bear that was shot to death by a hunter as a public safety measure after several unsuccessful efforts to capture him alive. (JJ1 had been part of a wildlife restoration program in Italy but walked across Austria into Germany.) The bear will be put on display next to the last bear previously killed (in 1835) in Bavaria.
