Italien – 23. 01. 2024
Action against water-fowling in northern Italy.
Over the past two weeks, CABS teams have been working with the Italian police to monitor waterfowl hunting in the Po estuary and the lagoons of Venice. Thousands of hunters go bird stalking in the almost inaccessible water landscape, the areas of the lakes and oxbow lakes are covered with hunting huts. 8 hunters were caught committing criminal offences. They had used electronic decoys or left ammunition unattended in their huts. Proceedings for administrative offences were opened against 12 other hunters who had used prohibited lead ammunition in the wetlands. A total of 7 shotguns and 40 shot teal and mallard ducks were seized.
