Goat owner panicked after Perenris: “I’m tired”

Marr: “When the dead sheep saw each other, I was tired. If a bear kills a sheep with hunger, I can live with it. But if he kills 14 sheep, I have no sympathy.” Maurer continues: “From a political point of view, it’s outrageous. Politicians have failed to protect 80,000 animals, including the alpine pastures in Tyrol.” In fact the alpine season has not yet begun. “Most of the cattle, sheep and goats have not yet been found.” Maureen and his friend drove the remaining sheep back into the valley on Thursday.

But what are the consequences of abandoning a centuries-old administration? “It simply came to our notice then. “The bear acted out of lust for murder in a frenzy of blood.”
