After the complaint by the animal rights activists of a massacre of hares which took place a few days ago in Ravenna “In defiance of any hunting regulations in progress”, even the hunters take sides against the episode. "We strongly condemn what has happened on the occasion of the opening of the hunt, where a group of people, certainly not qualifiable as hunters albeit in possession of a regular license, have carried out a very serious and disqualifying act that does not make them dissimilar from those who practice poaching, wreaking havoc on a large number of hares - write the hunting associations of Ravenna - We are faced with an act deliberately implemented, which discredits an entire category of people, respectful of the rules in the hunting field.
At the risk of erasing the image of the real hunter, which daily carries out its work to enrich and respect it. Therefore the hunting associations can only condemn this gesture, reserving the right to adopt those measures, not only statutory, which distinguish them from being considered in the same way as these 'subjects'.
At the same time, we will give a mandate to our lawyers to protect themselves at all levels of judgment and at the same time sue us as a civil party in a possible trial against them, to defend and emphasize that being hunters excludes being poachers ".
