Tension rises over the release of two bears

France 3/Scoop, Sep 30

Opponents of the reintroduction of two bears in the Pyrenees are creating some tension in the region.

They have threatened to kill the two bears.

“Numerous anonymous people are armed and ready to kill,” said Olivier Maurin, president of the Pyrenees Association for the Sustainable Development of the Pyrenees Identity (ADDIP),

The sheep farmer Julien Lasalle said that anti-bear people “take turns at night, armed, at all points where the bears could be released".

Associations of animal defenders had asked the prosecutor’s office to intervene and initiate criminal proceedings against the anti-bear brigade.
