170 ibex are at risk of being slaughtered in Haute-Savoie

Cursed nature, he comes against us. Look, he’s not impressed at all. Look, it’s even going to land right next to us, it’s absolutely incredible. It can be accessed without any problems and that is why it is really important to protect it because it is very emblematic of the mountain and all the fauna in general. So I do not see why we would go and ruin all that when we have invested so much money and so many resources in reality to protect them. What Pierre is talking about is the decree published by Lou Malaquin Journalist for Brut. of the prefect of Haute-Savoie. He gives permission for the slaughter of 170 ibex in the Bargy massif, even though it is a species that has been protected for more than 40 years. In fact, Capricorn is suspected of having transmitted brucellosis to a cattle in November last year. 26 The whole flock was to be slaughtered. Capricorn is an animal that has virtually disappeared from our mountains because it has been hunted a lot. It is an animal that is very, very not very shy, which is therefore quite accessible, and which we have reintroduced almost everywhere in our massifs. Pierre Raphoz Animal photographer Gems and ibex from the canton of Valais in Switzerland have returned to nature on the steep slopes of the Aravis massif. Do you smell it? – There, you have some just over, look. See what he’s doing there, he’s gone to stand between the two trees, exactly to scratch himself. It’s to really take the coat off a bit. – Yes, it’s wild, I’ve never seen that. And then you see, there’s him who did it, and there you have the two young little ones who are over there, and who need to do exactly the same thing that is on the tree. Brucellosis is a Damocles sword for farmers in the region. As France has been considered “free” of brucellosis since 2005, it has commercial advantages in milk and meat exports. Having a sick animal therefore puts the entire industry at risk. There was a kind of transposition Jean-Pierre Crouzat Regional Vice President of what is done in livestock farming for wild animals when there is an infection of this type where the rules require the entire herd. But everywhere in the world, once it has been tested, experienced, it does not work. One never knows exactly where animals, wild animals, are, and there are always some that are in population groups that are fragmented and tend to spread and spread infections rather than solve the problem. So that’s what happened in 2013, 2015, and that’s why we say that the attempts at arbitrary killing are counterproductive. – Uncritical slaughter means we are going to slaughter ibex without knowing if they are sick or not, right? -Exactly. There are alternatives. If there were none, maybe, but there are alternatives that are scientifically proven. The correct method is not to perform arbitrary slaughter, in a way by shooting into the heap. The most reliable method, according to scientific circles, is to catch as much as possible, to mark, to kill the HIV-positive and also to separate the grazing areas of the domestic animals from the areas frequented by wild animals. The National Nature Conservation Council issued a unanimous negative opinion on this executive order. And in addition, a public hearing in February last year received RPPEL 84% of the unfavorable votes. We tried to contact Haute-Savoie Prefecture on several occasions, but our interview requests went unanswered. To get to firearms, it’s safe and secure that … Well, I can not consider that. Well, I can not consider that a solution. It is an animal, on communication and on our tourism, which is clearly also part of our economy. .nature Journalists Nadège Justiniani Editing Camille de Zaluski
