The 68-year-old environmentalist wanted to protect “his mountain” from explorers and adventurers, he told the police after his detention.
He put up a stone trap on a sea level of 2.600 metres, close to the certain cave. The stones were stacked up and connected with a rope. If someone would use the rope, he would be killed by the fallen stones.
It was not the first time that the angry 68-year-old man displayed behavioural problems in this case. He also made telephon terror against police and the potholers, and there is also a suspicion that he has scratched two cars of the cave explorers.
At the moment the suspect is sitting in the prison of Leoben. The evidence is overwhelming.
