As per news report of BBC, but it was not a female that was shot but Arthur, a 17-year-old brown bear. The prince who lives in Austria has not yet responded, and the BBC's attempts to reach him have been unsuccessful. "We don't have a personal problem with the prince," Gabriel Paun of Environmental group Agent Green told the BBC. "We believe the hunting association was meeting his needs."
