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[edit]

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.[1] (JJ1 had been part of a wildlife restoration program in Italy but walked across Austria into Germany.)[2] The bear will be put on display next to the last bear previously killed (in 1835) in Bavaria.
