The amendments have adapted the regulation to the new division of competences, between the Region and the ATC, in the light of the transfer of proxies in the field of hunting from the Provinces to the Region.

For these specific reasons, the objective of the eradication of wild boar from these territories was introduced, which have a very high impact on human activities.
