Not just the Army
“As reported by prof. Pulina, member of the Sardinian crisis unit that deals with African swine fever, selective hunting is impossible without the help of hunters. The army is doing well, therefore, above all to overcome environmentalist opposition, but let's give a free hand to those who, at their own expense, would already be willing to help us against
The peculiarities of hunters
“Hunters have always been important safeguards for the protection of the territory. Their use would lead to many advantages: increased possibilities of immediately killing the animal, knowledge of the terrain, zootechnical preparation. Obviously, the disposal of carcasses must be regulated: we cannot leave possible outbreaks of disease in the woods. In short, we would begin a virtuous and sustainable circle also for the post-emergency period."
The necessary reductions
“We remember that the population of wild boars is estimated at almost two million heads, so the promise to cull 650000 of them will also be good for press conferences, but here we need more: a crisis unit, a single coordination, perhaps under General Figliuolo , and above all the immediate funds for the compensation of the injured. It is, therefore, time for man to take on his role as guardian of the environment by reducing this threat." Elio Martinelli, president of Assosuini, wrote this in a note.
