The plan approved by the council
“The five-year control plan of the 'columba livia' has been approved by the Regional Council to avoid damage to crops, a first step towards the admission of a problem raised several times by the League”: say the regional councilors Manuela Puletti and Valerio Mancini. “More needs to be done – the councilors explain – the hunting associations have in fact reiterated on several occasions the need to provide for the withdrawal of the pigeon species as an exception from ambush in order to concretely address the problem. We will be the spokesperson for their requests as we have done in the past. About a month ago, through a question in the Chamber first signed by Puletti, we already brought to the attention of councilor Morroni the need to intervene on the five-year plan currently in force for the strengthening of measures to contrast the excessive proliferation of the city pigeon in the villages and in the countryside of Umbria.
A Region full of difficulties
A phenomenon that is damaging both the beauty and wholesomeness of the villages of Umbria, and the profitability of farms operating in the countryside of our region, already tried by the recent economic difficulties due to the increase in fuel and raw material costs and by the changes climatic. At that juncture, commissioner Morroni replied that the emergency conditions did not exist, while today we learn with extreme satisfaction of the change of pace made in undertaking initiatives that go in the direction desired by the League, the only political force to deal with the issue. Evidently our solicitations, the result of constant discussions with citizens, farmers, hunting associations and the mayors of the municipalities concerned, have prompted the competent offices of the councilorship to carry out more in-depth studies on the matter and recognize the evidence of critical situations to which have to answer decisively.
Requests for help
It is not always the scientific data that has to confirm a reality of the facts sanctioned by the reports and requests for help that arrive daily from the territory, you just need to listen. We therefore applaud the approval by the Regional Council of the five-year plan to control the 'columba livia' - conclude the Northern League councilors - which authorizes further systems of dissuasion to stem this scourge and guarantees greater forms of defense for farmers and protection of the decorum of the centers inhabited and represents an important first step towards the recognition of a wider problem" (Regional Council of Umbria).
