Chamois were introduced in 1979 by hunters to create the BIG FIVE EUROPEEN for hunters; this to compensate for the decline of the hare and after the eradication of stray dogs; there are about 150 chamois in the Mars valley which are the subject of a hunting plan as well as the deer, the roe deer, the wild boar (the mouflon is not yet huntable) = big five
