A timely appeal
Punctual as every summer comes the animal rights appeal of the Lac against the hunting calendar and the deeds of Lombardy region regarding the upcoming hunting season. The appeal was assigned this year to the Second Section of the Milan TAR: the first useful hearing is on September 19, two days after the opening, which at the moment is not at risk.
The defense of the calendar
Federcaccia Lombardia will certainly appear in court to defend the calendar: we'll see if the Lac will request the suspension measure before the opening with a separate act. Nothing new so far, but let's look at the fanciful animal rights theses: according to the animal rights acronym, the Regions are not entitled to adopt diversified calendars for migratory game and there should be a single national calendar, contrary to what the European directive regarding the matter.
Even a question of constitutional legitimacy is raised against the national law which delegates to the Regions the power and duty to issue a regional calendar also relating to migratory fauna. Federcaccia Lombardia is already in contact with the offices and lawyers of the Lombardy Region and will certainly participate in the trial (source: FIDC).
