A handout picture shows a brown bear dubbed Mike by its fans in the eastern Swiss Val Mustair valley on June 30, 2012. The bear, known as M13 by authorities, has been shot and killed by gamekeepers in a mountainous border region in southeastern Switzerland after several run-ins with locals, Swiss officials said on February 20, 2013. How to deal with the bear had sparked controversy between gamekeepers and environmentalists far outside the Graubuenden canton, which borders on Italy and Austria and where the animal was most often spotted.
