Damaged trees cut in half, broken branches and eaten fruit was the image that faced the owner of an estate with almonds in the village of the same name in the Municipality of Grevena after the bear attack.
Mr. Panagiotis Karaliolios describes with complaint and tears in his eyes the damage the bear did to the trees he has been caring for for 8 years waiting to get the fruit. The bear, in its passage and in search of food, damaged more than half of the 120 trees on the property owned by the owner in the village of Amygdalies in Grevena. In fact, as Mr. Karaliolios points out, this is the first time he has seen a bear attack on almond groves. It is impressive how the animal breaks the outer bark and eats the fruit.
Cherries are the wild animal’s weakness, as Mr. Karalolios mentions, since for years on an estate he owns with cherries, he never got to taste the fruit of the summer fruit because of the bear. As he notes, the cost of electric fencing is high for him and he requests the intervention of the authorities given that the appearance of the bear in their own area is also frequent.
