Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with their kids

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with their kids, They are heralded for their dedication to humanitarian efforts and known for being loyal environmentalists.

But Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have now come under fire for allegedly 'causing environmental damage' to a picturesque Californian coastline...reported

The couple have been slammed by angry Santa Barbara locales after the Fight Club star was pictured teaching his children how to ride motorcross and quad bikes on a beach last Easter.

Father-of-six Brad, who owns a coastal ranch next to Gaviota State Park with his movie star partner, was seen showing his large brood how to burn rubber as the family spent some time having fun on Easter Sunday earlier this year.

But their adventure-filled day out has now been deemed 'dangerous', 'irresponsible' and even 'illegal' by residents of the coastal town.

According to some Santa Barbara locals who told, the four and two-wheeled vehicles are prohibited from the beach.

'I am not sure if it is illegal to drive on the beach in Santa Barbara County but it is certainly reprehensible,' one neighbour told the website.

'It is massively damaging to the environment and we’d hope the people who own houses on the shoreline acted more responsibly.'

Mike Lunsford, president of the Gaviota Coast Conservancy, told Radaronline that only lifeguards or other rescue vehicles are privy to maneuver those types of vehicles on the beach.

'It’s a rare gem, the Gaviota coastline — and there’s not many places left in the world like it,' he said.On state beaches, only lifeguard or rescue vehicles can drive on them. I saw the pictures, I wasn’t surprised, he probably didn’t know it was against the law. But he shouldn’t be doing it.'

While the beach in question is state property, Lunsford claims that he has heard from other neighbours who claim that the couple treat the area as their own, with their security team allegedly often 'bullying' other residents.
'I’ve heard of neighbors complaining about being bullied off the state beaches,' he told the website.

'I think they have some over-zealous security people who have legitimate concerns about their safety and paparazzi invading their privacy… but there have been incidents where people have been just going for hike and one friend was rudely accosted.'

Another neighbour also complained to the website, claiming that the Hollywood power couple have often tried to steer people away from the area.

'Neighbors have all complained because Brad started trying to keep them off the beach below his house there. This is a beach that is everyone’s and they’ve enjoyed it for years,' the source claimed.

'Brad Putt treats neighbors as if it is his beach now and he’s been bullying everyone. He’s pi**ed them all off. Maybe it’s time that Mr. Pitt gets a visit from the county.'

According to a source at the Santa Barbara County Council, the beaches are 'a protected habitat' and 'are owned by the public below the knee high tide line.'

The furore surrounding the family's treatment of the beach, comes after the Seven star was playing doting dad to his children last month.

Brad, 49, was the leader of the pack as he sat behind the wheel of a four-seater all-terrain vehicle in Santa Barbara and took it for a spin on the sand.

Four-year-old Knox may have been too young to get his own driving license but that didn't stop him learning the ropes from his famous father as he sat with his hands on the steering wheel.
Knox took pride of place on Brad's lap as the two cruised up and down the beach enjoying the bonding time in the amber-coloured vehicle.

While the Mr And Mrs Smith actor was giving some one on one tuition to one of his twins, his other boys were doing alright by themselves.

Maddox, 11, and Pax, eight, were obviously born to be wild as they made their own little biker gang.
The two brothers took their motocross bikes for a ride as Brad and Knox chose the slightly more comfortable choice of transportation.

It was safety first for the clan, however, as Brad wore a seat belt and his two eldest boys both had on helmets.
As the boys played with their toys, sisters Shiloh and Zahara were content simply with hanging out on the sand and entertaining themselves with their imagination.

Brad was on daddy duty as there was no sign of Angelina, who had recently returned from a mission in Rwanda.
MailOnline have contacted Mr. Pitt's representatives in regards to the claims and are still awaiting a response.
