Traditional hunting: thousands of birds will be trapped in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques and in Landes

Traditional hunting: thousands of birds will be trapped in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques and in Landes

Mis à jour le 28 February 2024

The Pau Administrative Tribunal has just rejected our two pleas and those by the LPO. Even though the State Council already considered the use of these devices to be illegal, shameful experiments paving the way for the return of hunting field larks with cages and nets was therefore able to continue in Landes and the Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Hunters’ vociferations before the Tribunal, after the suspension of the first three decrees in Ardennes, Lot-et-Garonne, and Gironde, were heard. Pathetic!

Whatever the result of these experiments may be, the government takes it for granted: if they once again authorise hunting next year, we will be there, as we have always been since 2018, to ensure that the law is being followed and, above all, to protect birds from hunters, who impatiently wait to be able to capture and kill thousands of field larks with their bare hands once again.

Ce n'est pas de la chasse !! Les oiseaux n'ont guère le choix que d'être
pris dans les filets.
C'est honteux !!

N'est-il pas possible de contester cette décision ?

Ras le bol, que le plaisir de tuer des chasseurs l emporte sur le droit de vivre des animaux.

Tous les moyens sont bons pour tuer, c'est une honte, il faut arrêter ce massacre. Marie Claude
