ES VEDRA GOATS: The story that keeps on giving took a further twist today after it emerged that at least 5 goats are possibly still alive on Es Vedra, the rocky islet off the west coast of Ibiza 

As reported in today’s local Ibiza press, photographic evidence from Sunday 21 Feb strongly suggests that a small group of livestock are still roaming the rock without a care in the world. 

Pep Ferrer, an 80 year old member of one of the families that ‘own’ Es Vedra, known as the “Vedraners”, saw the small herd on the rock face whilst out fishing and couldn’t wait to share the news. As yet it is unverified however Sr Ferrer is convinced in what he saw. 

It looks like the government agents tasked with eradicating the goats didn’t do their job properly which will delight many on the island and all of the 20 thousand people who signed an online petition against the cull. 

It will be very interesting to see the next move by Caterina Amengual, the environmental minister and the Balearic government who are already under extreme political pressure from their original decision to slaughter the goats and leave their carcasses on the islet. In the face of a huge public outcry they insist that they took ‘the best available option’ to protect the islands flora.
