The recovery of the 400-year-old chamois (IMAGE) Eurac Research Caption Marco Samadelli, conservation expert at Eurac Research, and Eurac Research anthropologist Alice Paladin with the 400-year-old chamois discovered in Val Aurina, South Tyrol (Italy). The discovery site, at 3200 m MSL, is impassable and can only be reached by a six-hour hike. For this reason, following their initial inspection, the researchers decided to ask for the support of the Alpine Army Corps in the recovery of the animal.
