Is the turtle pigeon hunt over soon?
Every year in France and Spain, hunters legally shoot between 1.4 and 2.2 million lovebirds – that’s about a quarter of the stock in the entire European Union! At the same time, the species dies out faster than protective measures can take effect.
The EU has now initiated a lawsuit against both countries, because they still release the Turtle Dove almost unlimitedly for launch.
The “Committee Against Bird Slaughter” had just published a scientific study of the current hunting statistics this spring, including fresh information on the unbelievable amount of turtle hunting.
The governments in Madrid and Paris now have the opportunity to explain themselves.
If they do not do so, they will be taken to the European Court of Justice. Chances are better than ever!
My comment: Turtle doves are a symbol of love and happiness, and some people believe that they can cure disease.
That is why two to three million birds are killed every year in the EU alone?
The organization BirdLife International, estimates that up to 600,000 lovebirds in the Mediterranean are shot down each year.
You have to be a pathetic, underdeveloped monster to enjoy the murder of these peaceful, lovely birds.
But with this massacre it seems to be over.
At least the French and Spanish psychopaths will soon have to look for another fun in the future.
