De insidiosa venatione Vrsorum.

CAP. XXVI.

                                        ATTENDVNT quam diligentissime vrsi ceruorum transitum,
                                        & maxime enixis catulis ipsa fœmina: quæ non
                                        tam fame vrgente, quam raptu catulorum, in omne obiectum
                                        animal sæuire consueuit. Illa etenim huiusmodi violentiis
                                        prouocata, vrsi fortitudinem, dolos, & insidias, vtVrsa fortior vrso.
                                        raptum vindicet, longe superat & excellit. Latitat enim
                                        inter densos arborum ramos, & virgulta: cui si ceruus cornuum
                                        gloria, aut narium virtute, vel cursus celeritate confidens, Cervus rapitur.
                                        incautius appropinquat, mox in eum irruit iugulandum:
& si primam sui defensionem, triumphumque in cornibus ponat, illorum
tamen nodositate & pondere fessus, vrsinaque rabie agitatus, ad humum deprimitur,
vt viribus & vita destitutus, illico corruat deuorandus. Accedit deinde cornutum
taurum, simili astutia vtens, se super dorsum eius proiiciens: cumque vrsam abigendo, Taurus rapitur.
cornibus se liberare nititur, ipsa cornua, scapulatque tenet vngulis, donec pondere
fatigatus corruat moriturus. Deinde dorso, velut sarcina, imposito tauro, bipes
syluarum latebras ingreditur, vt eo vescatur. Verum cum hyeme committitur
hæc præda, canibus prodita, vel niualibus vestigiis vrsa, non facile evadet illico
venatores vndique concurrentes. A trigesimo die conceptionis, quinos vt plurimum
catulos, paulo muribus maiores, informes, & candidos carne, sine oculis, Catuli vrsini in fromes.
sine pilo, vnguibus tamen apparentibus, parere solet: quos paulatim lambendo matres
figurant. Nec quicquam rarius hominibus, quam parientem videre vrsam. Ideo
mares quadragenis diebus latent, fœminæ quaternis mensibus. Specus si non habent, Specus vrsorum.
ramorum fruticumque congerie ædificant mansiones impenetrabiles imbribus, Somn’ gravissimus vrsorum.
mollique fronde, & musco, constratas. Septenis diebus gravi somno premuntur,
vt vulneribus vix excitari queant: tuncque mire pinguescunt,
suctu præsertim dextri pedis. Fœtus rigentes apprimendo
pectori souent, idque veluti volucres oua sua.
