The wildlife plan
During the hearing at Ministry of Agriculture held on 6 April last, the representative of ARCI Caccia, the presidential councilor Remo Calcagno, was presented with a preview of the Extraordinary Wildlife Control Plan, the one with which the Government intends to put a "patch" to the failure generated by the insertion of the modification of the art. 19 of ln 157/92 in Budget law. The control of problematic species was and is a need that can no longer be postponed and will be even more effective if participated and coordinated with all stakeholders.
An attitude he didn't like
There is much to smile about the method rightly contested, also on the merits, loudly by the Presidency Councilor, Remo Calcagno for the presentation of the document. It was April 6, a few days before Easter, with the possibility of presenting amendments until April 12, the day before the convening of the State-Regions Conference. We want to imagine the Ministry "at work" night and day for the amendments arrived 24 hours before the official release. Someone else, the Federcaccia, showed up at the meeting having already prepared amendments to a "secret document" (so much for the unit). Silence is practice. This, frankly, unacceptable attitude was contested by Calcagno who, thanks to his expertise, "on the fly" reminded the Ministry's "strategists" that it was astonishing that one detail was not remembered: there are no Faunistic Plans Regionals.
It will totally contradict
Probably, you want to solve the issue of basic income by enlisting control professionals, hunter companies paid specifically to capture and kill wild boar and more. A figure who, against social and public management, against direct farmers, against Italian citizens, owners of wildlife, will open the doors to those of privatization, to the advantage of multinationals hiding for interests. To this approach, which is based on "speculation" on wildlife, our opposition remains total. Blame the volunteers who is convenient? Not to hunters, not to teams!
The undisputed priority is to intervene with selective methods indicated by science and local knowledge. The goal is efficiency and the results, unfortunately, not achieved. Who benefits from excluding intervention techniques such as stalking a priori? Arci Caccia hopes that the Regions, which met today to discuss these topics, want to open a path of confrontation with all the stakeholders, overcoming agreements and electoral positions that are seen in some regions. The Government, in Rome, has forgotten the commitments made, starting with the reconstitution of the National Technical Faunistic Hunting Committee. When will parliament want to put an end to the primacy of lobbies over democratic confrontation?
