Oh my goodness has the auto translator at the Fapas website suddenly broken? I can’t believe what I am reading in English so switched to Spanish and then to Portuguese… Yes it seems to be true.
The people involved in protected the brown bear in Spain were the ones that killed Cachou and were part of a drug smuggling group of people and wheres the 2 million euros in grant money gone?
Read it in whatever language you like but this is horrible!
This is the image from the Vanguardia newspaper last year when the dead bear was discovered.

Fapas carry on with a pretty scathing attack on the authorities here in Spain demandin an explanation as to why there are 54 bears on the French side of the Pyrenees and zero on the Spanish side…
Read the article here: https://www.fapas.es/noticias/los-pirineos-ya-tienen-64-osos
The Fapas website has an inbuilt google translator which although clumsy does help a bit to read the articles if your Spanish reading skills need to be practiced.

And the story is being covered in international press now…. The plain clothes investigators sound like men in black!!!
Finally, he dialed the head of Catalonia’s park ranger corps in the Northern Pyrenees, Anna Servent. Spry in her early 40s, with a resolute expression and brown hair cut short on one side, Servent heads a small, semi-secret team of investigators who specialize in animal poisonings. Their methods are unconventional. While most rangers focus on analyzing animal remains, the people on Servent’s team spend years building networks of local informers. They wear plainclothes, change vehicles often, and tend to visit their sources in the middle of the night to avoid drawing attention.
“Poisoning the bear was a mistake, and whoever did it wasn’t thinking about the consequences,” Cuny says. “But when a beast kills 12 or 13 horses and is not removed from the mountain, you can understand that someone decided to do it themselves.”
The above link is pretty much obligatory reading…….

Same story being repeated in various worldwide press…. Can’t stand it as the text is just insulting…

Agatha Christie springs to mind….
Breathe and try to be nice to people 🙂
