The controversial points
The Campania Regional Administrative Court upheld the appeal presented by ENPA and WWF which challenged the points of the program concerning:
– pre-opening for dove and blackbird;
– turdidi withdrawal until 20 January instead of 10 January;
– hunting in territories affected by forest fires;
– forest fire map update.
Special suspensions and decisions
Consequently, the precautionary suspension of the effects of the Resolution on the hunting calendar was accepted and as a first consequence the pre-opening set for 3, 9 and 10 September is suspended. The Council Chamber for collegiate discussions has been set for 26 September 2023 (source: FIDC).
An underappreciated "habit".
As happens punctually every year, animal rights and environmental associations make every effort to appeal against the hunting calendars, with the result that various administrative sentences, such as the one issued a few hours ago, end up penalizing an already rather harassed category such as that of hunters.
