Italy’s Lazio e Molise National Park, just two hours outside of Rome, has an incredible variety of wildlife: wolves, boar, red deer, roe deer, goat-antelope. It’s also home to about 50 European brown bears, the smaller cousins of the grizzly, and the world’s rarest subspecies of brown bear. Chris meets up with the “Italian Chris Morgan” for a tour of this island of wilderness.
