The Cabra Mallorquina

The Cabra Mallorquina is a semi-wild goat that roams freely in the mountainous regions of the island, mainly in the Serra de Tramuntana, the Serra de Llevant (near Artà), and the Peninsula de la Victòria (near Mal Pas, Alcúdia). A few weeks ago, I found myself face to face with a small herd of these Mallorcan goats just below the Ermita de la Victòria, happily crossing my path and not being much bothered about me, or anything, really.

I, however, was quite a bit bothered about the photo (below) that I found in the newspapers the other day, alerting of a campaign that the Conselleria de Medio Ambiente del Govern is undertaking this year. It seems that about 100 wild goats have so far been captured throughout the island during the course of this summer, with the aim of destruction, one can only assume. I believe that the photo was taken in the Andratx area.

The photo (top) was taken near Mal Pas, Alcúdia, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 3rd, 2008. The time was 16:25:44. I did not take the photo; my daughter did. Thank you, sweetie. The photo (bottom) was taken from the internet; it is credited with Govern Balear. Gràcies.
