Protected birds being hunted and killed

550px-Common_Buzzard

This year again, the LPO (Ligue pour la protection des oiseaux) deplores the shooting of birds belonging to protected species and cowardly slaughtered by hunters. Since the beginning of 2017, 68 X-rays  have been carried out on injured birds sent to the Regional Wildlife Conservation Center of Villeveyrac managed by the LPO Hérault and have identified 16 protected birds victims of hunting shots ( of which 8 outside the hunting season …). Among the victims: six variable Buzzards, a Black Kite, a European Sparrowhawk, a Northern Goshawk, a Common Hawk, two Common Kestrels, a Short-toed Whitebird (raptor feeding mainly on reptiles), a Little Bustard (rare species subject to a National Action Plan), etc.

Strong suspicions hover over other birds: traces of sinkers in the feathers, wounds with an entry and exit. However, in order to be able to officially attribute these wounds to hunting and to refer to the National Office of Hunting and Wildlife, radiographic evidence is necessary. Unfortunately, only four birds survived on all these animals that were greeted and seriously wounded: a Buzzard was able to be healed and released, a Northern Goshawk, a Hobby Falcon and a Short-toed White-hawk are still at risk.

Outrage about hunters

At the moment there is a lot of commotion about a stud being killed in the garden without the owner’s consent in the Oise department. (see previous post)

People are outraged and movies are being published on facebook like the one below of earlier animal abuse  by the same hunter’s group. This stud was beaten several times with a whip to scare him away out of a habitation area. He was lead into the cemetery, apparently put to sleep to move him back into the forest (that’s what they say, but no-one really knows what happened to him….people say so much in France that is not true)

The owner of the garden had not given it’s consent for the hunters to enter the property. The chasing and killing of the stag has been filmed by a neighbor …

Pigeons butchered by hunters in the Lot et Garonne

pigeon

On the 25th of January, 80 hunters of the village of Villeréal and 12 surrounding villages carried out a major kill of pigeons organised by the municipality and supported by maire Pierre-Henri Arnstam.  The pigeons are considered a nuisance by farmers and villagers and are supposed to have made a lot of damages to crops and buildings. 3200 cartridges had been handed out to the hunters to carry out this massacre.
