Maxi wants to live – like many thousands of other fox pups in Germany.
In Kahlgrund in Bavaria, the hunters’ association organizes their “predator game weeks” exactly between the mating and setting time of the foxes – from the last week of January to March 6th.
This means that in January tons of fox males are legally shot, which are necessary for the rearing of the young animals. It can also be assumed that female parents and numerous highly vulnerable abilities will also be shot by mid-February at the latest.
Together with the Fox action alliance, we appealed to the chairman of the Kahlgrund hunting association, to the responsible mayor of Alzenau and to the district administrator … and received no response.
Now we are starting a petition to the responsible minister Michaela Kaniber (CSU) in Bavaria and to Dr. Andreas Treitl, the chairman of the hunting association. Our goal is a year-round closed season for foxes and the end of the current predatory game weeks, no later than mid-February.
The fox hunt is ecologically senseless and only means that the natural birth control of the animals is suspended and the average age of the foxes is now less than two years. Fox weeks or whatever these hunts are called are not at all compatible with the idea of animal welfare. They cause fox pups to freeze or starve.
“So it has been proven that in January and February the fathers of the future generations of foxes, and at the latest from mid-February also the fox mothers of the pups (who are already waiting under construction) are shot. “Image: Michael Hamann
Please support us and sign the petition from Wildlife Conservation Germany and the Action Alliance Fox here.
We stay on the ball for you, we inform and work to abolish the hunt.
And I mean…
The hunting law dates from 1934, that means from the Nazi era, and has never been amended, so it has long been outdated.
In the past, the forest murderers / hunters spread the fairy tale about rabies in all media.
Because rabies has not been in Germany for many years, suddenly the hunter comes up with the idea that it is the fox tapeworm that can be so dangerous for people. So they can execute the animals easier!!
Because hunters are not only professional killers, they are also professional liars.
How primitive and brutaly this minority of our society is, be shown by the fact that they brutally and ruthlessly murder the fox, even though it belongs to the group of canids (dogs).
And dogs are also used to kill this species. On the one hand, the hunters keep dogs and use them for hunting, and on the other hand they kill their relatives, the foxes, without a valid reason.
It’s about a pure lust for murder.
What I have been able to find so far (here in the high Black Forest where I live there are plenty of hunters) is that old, ramshackle high seats are not removed, but individual parts can still be found in the forest.
It is not uncommon for nails and screws to stand up, so that when wild animals step on such wood parts, they are injured.
We live in a banana state, in which some lobbyists use all possible means to keep the 1934 hunting law alive (which allows hunters to seize foreign property) and constantly try to take advantage of gaps in their favor and thus live out their lust for murder how it suits them.
Now look at the picture and then someone wants to get upset about torn animals from the wolf?
I think of executions and gassings in the concentration camp.
My best regards to all, Venus
From Mark – I am adding more to this post by Venus as I was very involved with German ‘Fox Week’ in the past. I worked with a German activist (D) and we managed to get the exclusive photographs of animals dead in the wheelie bins, and skinned foxes, which you can see in the links below; and many of the images I show in the following.
Beautiful animals, which just adds to the frustration of this event and shows the reality of what the hunters have to do to get a ‘kick’ – they are nothing more than blood junkies.
These are not all the posts which I did on SAV (my other site), but they give a good insight into what we did re our specific investigations.
I wont say ‘enjoy’ as there is nothing to relish about all these links – just see the reality of the Fox Week and what it brings for German wildlife.
