French Authorities Released Bear in the Pyrenees amongst Protests from Locals

In France, two bears were released by decision of the Minister of Ecological Transition, François de Rugy. However, different farmers and ranchers were protesting because one of the bears has killed more than 8 horses and has the whole place on high alert.

Dangerous Animal

One of the 2 animals that were liberated is named Goiat, a bear that had every local alarmed, as they classified it as a wild and dangerous bear since it has killed several horses.

The funny thing is that Goiat isn’t really such a wild and aggressive bear. He would never hurt any human being, which is scientifically proven, given that when he sees someone, he gets really scared and runs away.


Different farmers have carried out several protests in rejection of the bears in the province since one of the bears has attacked some of the cattle and has even killed some animals. Only last year, there were over 1000 animal victims. Their corpses even block the road on streets and highways.

Located In The Pyrenees

By decision of the minister and due to the protests that the farmers started because the bear attacked their cattle, they have relocated the two bears in the Pyrenees (Frances’s mountain).

Bear Plan

The so-called “Bear Plan” was executed, and the minister held a meeting with all those affected by the animals’ deaths and injuries inflicted by the bears. Thanks to this plan, there will be an investment in the affected province’s livestock, tourism, and hunt. Also, bears will be monitored.

The plan has been successfully carried out, and the bears have been relocated. Also, the minister will continue to apply this plan with different animals in France, so they can be free in an environment in which they won’t be abused or hurt.

Having wild animals among citizens can be a very dangerous thing, but nothing will ever be solved by getting rid of them. The best way to deal with them is by having them in a natural and free zone where they can be in their habitat while controlling certain limits to avoid any accident with humans or other animals.
