Pyrenean bears

La Colline aux Marmottes, première mise en ligne par SebastienToulouse.

Ok those are from the natural park “La colline aux marmottes”, but there is a few of their cousins wandering around in the mountain.

There is a huge polemic here in the Pyrenees because bears disappeared a decade ago, and the actual ones come from Slovenia.

The problem is the sheep are no longer kept during the summer by men and big dogs so bears kills lot of them.

Bears are a good topic to avoid in the Pyrenees.

As seen in the beautiful natural park “La colline aux marmottes” in Argelès-Gazost, south of France.

Have been here twice already, and each time it was really nice.
