Hunting and hunters
“It is with real pleasure that I read the words spoken by the minister Francesco Lollobrigida on hunting and hunters”. Thus the national President of the Italian Hunting Federation Massimo Buconi commented on the statement of the Minister of Agriculture regarding hunting activity and its practitioners. “Hunting activity is legitimate and regulated by state laws – Minister Lollobrigida claimed – honest citizens who contribute to repopulation and bio-regulation activities, paying taxes regularly, are in fact damaged from every point of view”.
Very clear words
“A clear and precise statement, which perfectly defines hundreds of thousands of citizen hunters, who for too long have been the object of ideological propaganda carried out also by parts of the institutions which should instead make impartiality and equidistance the measure of their actions” continued the national President of Federcaccia.
“I am pleased with the will expressed by the Minister to convene the National Hunting Faunistic Committee, in which I will take part with the utmost commitment – concluded Buconi – However, I expect that in this open declaration of consideration towards hunters the Minister Lollobrigida and with him the rest of the executive should follow in a very short time measures with legal force to resolve the critical issues arising from the application of the Community Directive which provides for the ban on the use of lead ammunition in wetlands, so as to allow hunters to start of the hunting season serene and without unknowns" (source: Federcaccia).
