The animal rights appeal
With the Decree of 24 August the Regional Administrative Court for the Sicilia (Third Section) ruled on the appeal brought by WWF Italy, Legambiente Sicily, Lipu, Enpa, Lndc Animal Protection and Lac for the annulment of the regional hunting calendar. Having seen the documents, the Tar decided to reject the request for precautionary suspension by setting the treatment of the animal rights appeal in the council chamber on 18 September 2023.
Wood pigeon and dove
“In many ways a historic sentence – commented the regional president of Federcaccia Sicilia Giuseppe La Russa – wood pigeon and turtledove had received the positive opinion of Ispra and for this reason the decision appears to be a logical consequence. For the turtle dove in particular, the Region provided for timely reporting in real time of the levy in accordance with the national management plan, for which FIdC played a decisive role in the approval.
Hunt in pre-opening
This means for Sicilian hunters the possibility to go hunting in pre-opening as foreseen by the CV of last June 26th and to do the general opening on September 17th. In the meantime, before 2 September, the Councilor will publish the DA for the rabbit”.
