Luxembourg to revise Hunting Laws

Photobucket

From station.lu

Luxembourg’s Minister of the Environment, Lucien Lux, is currently preparing a new Hunting Law for the Grand Duchy which he presented this week to Parliament. The new law is understood to be almost 5 years in preparation, during which the Environment Committee met with hunters’ representatives as well as environmentalists and farmers. The 90-paragraph bill has been prepared according to “wildlife ecological management” and aims to stabilize and maintain wildlife numbers in the Grand Duchy. The Green party has been lobbying that there are too many wild boar and deer in Luxembourg.

Feeding of wildlife by hunters is to be banned as part of the “intensive animal husbandry” initiative, and limits will be introduced and enforced. Also, landowners will have the right to deny hunters access to their lands on ethical grounds. The new bill replaces the hunting laws from 1885 and 1925.

The Greens argued that there are too many wild boar and deer in Luxembourg. Don’t you find that sentence strange?
