Almost 385,000 hunters exist in Germany.
Actually, this is a wretched minority of 0,45% unofficial psychopaths with an official license to murder defenseless animals in the forest. The hunting law in Germany is an empowerment law and dates back to 1933. It authorizes hunters to seize foreign property.
First of all we have to make one thing clear: The aim of the hunt is the execution or the killing, possibly of the most beautiful animals as a personal trophy – and nothing else.
There are several hunting (murder) methods in Germany.
Person hunting, social hunting, pressure hunt, hunt, construction hunt … all equipped with dirty means to lure defenseless animals out of their homes with trained dogs or to make them easier victim for the hunter.
One of the cruelest hunting methods is the “sealing system” (Schliefanlagen).
What is a sealing system?
The dogs are trained on live foxes, which are caught and caged for this purpose. The hunters thereby violate the Animal Welfare Act § 3 paragraph 7.
Of course, the hunter trains his dogs hidden from the public, with the purpose of finding the foxes in their burrows and more easily driving in front of the hunter or “killing” them directly in their burrows.
The hunter does not care about the fox. The foxes are locked up and get some food thrown into the cage so they do not starve.
Usually locals or strollers are aware of the fact that the foxes are crying out in the cages while attempting to escape. No construction, no hiding place or shelter. Nothing. Only the bare ground and the grid in mind that denies access to visible freedom.
The purpose of these facilities is to train the dogs to drive the foxes out of their burrows and so the hunter can shoot them more easily. Or to teach the dogs to choke them in their burrow.
Hunting dogs are thus “trained”. Ask a hunter, he will claim that the foxes live a wonderful life in the sealing facilities... Such methods are legal in Germany!
Construction and function.
The dogs should learn to be able to hunt through the corridors of the burrow behind the foxes. Young foxes are preferred. They are still relatively inexperienced, relatively easy to catch in life traps and are not such a big threat to the dogs when fighting.
For this purpose is built an artificial structure with several aisles of concrete pipes or plates, which meet again and again in different places and converge.
About slider, lid and grid, the hunter decides how far the fox can escape and whether the dog should reach him or not.
A fox is driven into the tube. The dog behind. In contrast to the real, own fox construction, the fox does not know these courses.
Besides, it does not know which courses are blocked and which are not. Hounded by the dog, the fox tries to escape and, logically, escapes in the direction to wich hunter forces him, with shotting off the corridors.
At first, the hunter usually takes care that the dog can not reach the fox. But that does not change the stress the fox is exposed to. In fear of death, he tries to escape. Not infrequently he suffers from a heart attack or shock. But what does that matter? Then he is killed or the dog may kill him for “reward”.
In the further hunting dog training a direct confrontation between dog and fox is wanted, whereby the hunter looks after his dog. If the dog has caught the fox safely, the hunter looks amused to how the fox is massacred by the dog. Should the fox succeed in fending off the dog, or is there even a risk of injury to the dog, the hunter naturally helps his dog to kill the fox.
As of fall, sealing facilities are usually taken out of service. In winter, no hunter feels like training dogs. Foxes that are still in the plant are killed by the hunter or have to give their life to the last dog of the season.
No fox leaves such a Guantanamo alive.
The video, although in German, still helps to get a look behind the fences and barracks
Paul Parin is a neurologist psychoanalyst and hunter himself. He wrote the book “The passion of the hunter” (Hamburg, 2003) where he speaks of the passion, the addiction, the hunting fever without shame and with cynicism: “Since my first hunting adventures I know: hunting opens up a space for crime to murder and for sexual desire , no matter when and where is hunted. … The real hunt can not be had without deliberate killing. Passionate hunters want to kill. Hunting without murder is a self-abolishing concept … And because it’s about passion, greed, lust – just a fever – this book is about sex and crime, about lust and crime of all kinds, about murder and sexual murder. “
Germany, Lower Saxony: in 2019 13 such hunting facilities were destroyed ()
Ladies and gentlemen, fortunately, we live in a democracy and we have freedom of expression. And my opinion is: hunters are terrorists, murderers and liars!
