One Voice is taking to the streets to call for a true plan to make hunting safe and for a radical reform

Mis à jour le 29 March 2023

On Saturday 11 February, One Voice activists will be raising public awareness in Compiègne, Nantes, Angers, and Troyes. On Sunday 12 February, the same will be happening in Montpellier, Rouen, and Gap. On the following Saturday, on 18 February, it will happen in Lille, Annecy, Aix-en-Provence, Nice, and Bayonne. In Nice, Olivier Arnaubex, lawyer at Barreau de Nice and singer-songwriter as part of the LFA (Looking For Animals) group, is committed to the animal cause and will share his compositions during our audience participation event. Finally, on Saturday 11 March, the towns of Lyon, Paris, and La Rochelle will finish the series at the end of the hunting season.

Hunting in France: an exception as the worst among its neighbours

Penned hunting, gun or bow hunting, badger or fox digging, trapping, hunting with hounds… in the 21st century, all of these practices still exist! Hunting in France: there are between 6,000 and 8,000 tonnes of lead in the wild, 20 million animals coming from breeding farms to be released and slaughtered, 45 million animals slaughtered each year, and 90 species of animals killed each year! France is, at any rate, the country that hunts the most types of species.

One Voice has opposed it for years and tries to make changes to the mentalities in France by demonstrating the suffering of the animals, the absurdity of the practice, and the collateral damage that hunting brings about.

From a human perspective, the government plan falls short of societal expectations

With their plan to make hunting safer, the government is proposing measures that are far from the expectations of the French population who would like to benefit from the countryside and the great outdoors without risking their lives. One Voice is reporting on the dramatic under-sizing of government propositions in relation to the stakes. It will take a radical reform on hunting, not small measures that are once again insulting to grieving families and to biodiversity which is being wiped out before our eyes.

The lack of political desire to change anything is such a pity. The animal and human deaths accrued still do not hold up against the lobby; we wonder how it still manages to dictate its own laws when it represents such a small minority. Country people as well as city-dwellers are more than fed up!

For wild boars, foxes, badgers, does, roebuck, fallow deer, rabbits, and all birds in our woodlands and countryside, but also for measures worthy of this name for humans, thus guaranteeing the safety of everyone, we will be in 15 French towns during weekends in February and March 2023.

La pratique de la chasse telle qu'elle est, pose vraiment des problèmes, elle est dangereuse et ne remplit pas "son rôle de ré- équilibrage" que la gestion des zones cultivées a déséquilibré.
Il y a de gros problèmes, entre autre, au niveau des armes utilisées. Il y a un vrai travail à faire sur un équilibre entre la loi et les abus non contrôlés . C'est un milieu où règne apparemment, un sentiment de " toute puissance ( très dangereux" ) . Ils s'appuient sur leur rôle de régulateur, il n'est pas rempli( trop de sangliers). Il faut que ce soit l'ensemble de la population qui soit dans une force de changement .

Des animaux sortis des élevages ou autres, qui ne savent plus, perdus, apeurés, et abattus très vite... C'est de la chasse ????????? IL FAUT PLUS de réglementation, MAIS UNE REGLEMENTATION CONTROLEE, moins de sauvages sans scrupules, inhumains alors pour les animaux vous pensez bien !!!!!

A croire que les chasseurs français sont d'un autre siècle. Peut-être sont-ils du moyen-âge ? ...Ils partent à la chasse ivres, tuent tout ce qui bougent, alors mon souhait serait d'abolir la chasse et toutes les pratiques qui en résultent..

Je suis contre un plan de sécurisation car c'est encore pour protéger l'humain, il faut arrêter la chasse un point c'est tout, car interdire la chasse le week-end est uniquement dans l'intérêt des humains !! Il faut des réformes pour les animaux uniquement !! L'humain ne pense qu'à lui, là c'est l'animal qui souffre, qui meurt, qui a peur !!!
