Gullo stated that they want to adopt the wild goats, but animal rights organizations oppose this.

Alicudi Mayor Gullo announced on social media on April 5 that there were 600 wild goats living on the island with a population of 100 and that they wanted to adopt them.

Stating that there was an explosion in applications following the announcement, Mayor Gullo emphasized that the wild goats caused problems because they damaged the gardens of the houses, their environment and agricultural products.

On the other hand, the LNDC Animal Protection NGO, which works for animal welfare, argued that the goats were living freely on the island, but after the adoption, their species would be extinct. "These goats, who today live in freedom and peace, will find themselves facing a new life of captivity and exploitation. LNDC Animal Protection is considering all possible legal steps to stop this slaughter."
