Petition: Leave the Pyrenees Bears Alone!

Goiat is a brown bear who was brought to the Pyrenees in 2016 from Slovenia to help the local population grow and thrive. However, this particular bear has developed a taste for livestock and has attacked and eaten a large number of sheep, goats and horses in the last two years.

Now, livestock owners are demanding that he be removed…or worse.

This is ridiculous! Goiat was forcefully removed from his own territory and dumped in a new one, which must have been extremely traumatising. He is living in his own environment and is no danger to humans – what should happen is that the responsible owners of livestock should learn to protect their animals more efficiently with dogs, strong fences and 24 hour surveillance.

Goiat has gone through enough. Let him stay!
