Good news, genet found in the Vega Baja!

Very good news for Vega Baja’s natural environment, a common genet, which hadn´t been seen in 30 years time around the area, has been found by a local man in Rojales while he was looking for snails. The animal had accidentally fallen into a cage-trap. Only a few specimens of these carnivorous mammals  had been spotted in the Hondo Nature reserve in Elche and Crevillente. Experts say that genets are probably expanding and recovering their former territory. Ain’t they cute?
