Hunting and Territory. "We believe the time is ripe to define a single regional hunting calendar which, considering the local specificities, tends to homogenize behavior, crop protection and sampling". This was underlined by the regional Cia-Agricoltori Italiani and Confagricoltura near the opening of the new hunting season.
"We cannot continue to chase the extreme forces of some hunting representatives that aim to defend corporate interests - denounce the two agricultural organizations - and instead of getting lost in wasteful and not very useful discussions on hunting calendar it would be more useful for everyone to start a constructive discussion on the reform of the regional law on the subject which requires a profound review to give greater functionality and efficiency to the ATC, territorial hunting areas, in guaranteeing substantial compliance with the regional planning tools that fix indices of fauna density and limits to the intensity of the damage that agriculture continues to passively suffer without being able to do anything ".
Finally, the Italian Agriculture Cia and Confagricoltura underline how the problems of hunting management in a correct relationship with the environment and agricultural activity "are of a very different nature compared to the current sterile controversies regarding the form of the hunting calendar". Finally, the agricultural associations hope that requests submitted by the agricultural world will be taken into consideration.
