At least 7 garranos were brought to the Parque Natural de SIntra to live and breed there, where there are no wolves, creating more biodiversity in the Park, and helping to reduce fire hazzard.

There was also a occasional (paid) trip to see the garranos in the wild in Sintra.

We (Portugal and Spain) have a long-running and successfull program to reproduce and bring back into the wild the Iberian Lynx, a beautifull animal.

The same (big reduction in numbers) is happening to other working animals like the donkey and the mule, that I saw plenty in my childhood, but now are not common.

Regarding donkeys, there’s at least a place where people keep and breed donkeys, to preserve the race.

Maybe one of these garranos transplanted to Sintra’s Natural Park is responsible for this episode in a LIDL market near Sintra: https://www.nit.pt/comida/gourmet-e-vinhos/ponei-entrou-num-supermercado-lidl-em-sintra-para-comer-legumes

(the news is in portuguese, but there’s a video in it)
