According to Lipu, in an official statement a few days ago, the season of Community infringements and the probable indictment of Italy, now under European investigation on the hunting.
The possible condemnation could lead to the transformation of the hunting activity with the reduction of the duration of the season, the cancellation of various species among those that can be hunted and the rigorous application of rules such as that of marking the heads at the time of killing.
Meanwhile in Tuscany it grows the wild boar emergency due to the ever closer presence to city centers, a dangerous situation both for road safety and for the families themselves, but above all for the increasingly devastated valuable crops, just think that the presence of ungulates in our region is four times higher to the national average and the damage is enormous.
In the province of Lucca, the Regional Councilor Remaschi is meeting with the managers and members of the Lucca hunting associations to analyze together the criticalities and peculiarities of the hunting activity, to propose and collaborate in an innovative way of comparing and managing the activity. Upcoming meetings: this Monday 28 September at 21,00 pm at the Croce Verde headquarters in via Fratelli Rosselli in Lido di Camaiore, and Friday 2 October at 21,00 pm at the Tobino room, ground floor Palazzo Ducale, Piazza Napoleone in Lucca.
A curiosity, hunting is not a purely male activity as is commonly thought, even if in a clear minority, women also participate, for example the CPA confirms us 5 hunters for a total of around 350 members in the offices of Coreglia, Lucca, Porcari, Altopascio. On the subject of ungulates, President Dallari argues that all possible means can be used to recover them, ergo capture them and move them to areas more suitable for their presence.
Immediate response from Federcaccia Lucca, Carlo Martinelli, according to which “Italy will not be liable to infringement of the EU, because the parliament has legislated in a correct way, according to him, so this possibility has lapsed. The Italian law is the most restrictive in Europe and the Tuscan regional law is the most avant-garde of all the Italian regions. If it were necessary to reiterate it, it must be said that the citizen-hunters approved by Federcaccia are all absolutely legal, in line with national and European regulations. Otherwise they would not be able to practice hunting, much less possess weapons ".
Continuing Martinelli affirms, “as we have anticipated in recent days, meanwhile, the Regional Councilor Remaschi is meeting the managers and members of the Lucca hunting associations to define the modalities for the containment of ungulates. Martinelli says he is very happy with the scheduled meetings, but there are obviously some long and complex things to discuss with the administrators. A hot topic in this period that concerns a large slice of citizens if we think that Lucca hunters are in total about 8500 of which Federcaccia alone represents 52%, with the CCT reaching 78% ”.
