BALEAREAN BOC HUNTING IN SPAIN
The Balearean boc (also called Balearean goat or Majorcan wild goat) is an endemic animal in Mallorca, present on the island for more than 4.000 years. Actually, the scientific studies determined that the Phoenicians were the first to import this goat from Eastern Europe while their battles to control the trade in the Mediterranean Sea. This theory is supported by the DNA studies of the Bezoar or the Kri-Kri ibexes which, once compared, make the Balearean boc a relative of these two. However, thousands of years of evolution have been enough to establish a different species, totally adapted to its habitat that holds singular features that make it unique!
