French Farmers Bring Sheep to the Eiffel Tower to Protest Wolf Attacks

TIME

French farmers, protesting wolf attacks against their sheep, decided to place the issue at the government’s doorstep on Thursday — by bringing their flocks to graze at the Eiffel tower.

The farmers claim French environmental policies do not provide their livestock with enough protection from predators, the Associated Press reports.

The government, on the other hand, says the protection and compensation measures already in place are good enough considering that it is also trying to protect the wolf population.

The sheep, meanwhile, were not as vocal about their predicament, idly munching on grass in front of the iconic Parisian monument while their owners do all the talking.
