Dear SCI Members, Hunters, nature and animal lovers,
As you might have heard, the UK parliament might introduce during their spring session a bill to implement the toughest bans in the world on the import of hunting trophies in the United Kingdom. You might also know that in march 2019 a Swiss Parliamentarian proposed a motion to the Swiss parliament to vote on a similar issue. These types of motions/bills will become more and more publicized by politicians because they win popular votes through misinformation, shocking and very emotional pictures on social media. Few politicians will ever defend the cause of sustainable wild life management through hunting as it will not bring many votes in Europe. Europeans are more and more cut off reality of the country side. Europeans believe that animals are all Walt Disney characters that cows drink milk and that meat comes packed in plastic. Sadly the reality is not what it is. Proper wild life management includes killing, shooting or culling animals, even protected ones.
