Let us appropriate what Claude Robert said:

"Hunting is a meaningful rural activity in our today's society, with codes of ethics and exacting discipline ...... The hunter has become a manager and a key player in the protection of nature. By his knowledge of the fauna, but also by his implication in environmental development, the fight for the continuum of  space, the research on the species, the maintenance of the biodiversity, the health watch, the regulation of the invasive species. In short, a sanitary sentry ."

therewith the editor quotes Bruno de Cessoles, journalist and writer:

" What is hunting, a sport? No doubt, but much more than that. A tragic game confronting the intelligence of  man and the quile of the animal? In part. A science ? Certainly. An art, and even a lifestyle? We can back that. A hobby ? Certainly not. A pascalian entertainment? The opposite is true, since hunting is partly linked to sacredness and death, and it incites the one who practices it to meditate on the hereafter. "

The owner of the hunt was very happy with the roe doe having her fawn, born a bit early but in good health.

But soon, after the first mowing of the field, the doe seemed very nervous.

She was turning all over the field.

No sight of the fawn !


vign_DSC_0931

Not very strange, the fawn was found rapidly. 

Dead, and with its legs chopped.

This also happens to hare, pheasant- and partridge nests, that so pay a heavy toll  to mowing and harvesting.

When will there finally be a mutual understanding between farmers and hunters?

Farmers should inform the hunters of their imminent planning of mowing  their fields

We all hope that the fine weather will soon arrive, and with that all the pleasures of the walks and outings of the first hunting days, in complyance to the laws of each country and each region. These are the positives sides but there are also the less pleasant points, linked to the warming of the atmosphere, ie. insect pests such as ticks, mosquitoes and fleas.

Below you will find a very useful website for the search for information on the risks incurred in a chosen region and that by a specific insect in all over Europe and beyond.

THE HUNTING LODGE OF PIERRE GRANSART SET ON FIRE
Vign_IMG_8669

 

STUPIDITY IS AN ABYSS WITHOUT BOTTOM !

This time it was the hunting lodge of our Secretary General who was the victim.

The local fire brigade was called to a fire in the woods on Pierre's hunting grounds.

Unfortunately it was too late, the flames had already park dramatically destroyed the whole lodge. Only a heap of melted scrap was left over.

Lucky enough it happened in winter, because in summer, probably the whole forest would have gone to ashes.

The outing of the fire brigade could, in case of necessity, heve been needed to save lives elsewhere !

GOOD NEWS FOR THE CITY OF SAINT HUBERT AND ITS BASILICA

A subsidy of 10 million euros por restoration of the Basilica

The Walloon Heritage Minister Maxime PRÉVOT announced that he granted a total of ten million euros of subsidies for the partial renovation of the Basilica, which urgently needs these works.

The Minister is happy to offer local authorities a viable financial plan that will enable the in depth restoration of what is one of the richest religious and heritage buildings of the province of Luxembourg.

Furthermore, Minister PREVOT also granted, prior to this Framework Agreement, a subsidy to replace the safety nets located in the nave and the transept of the Basilica. The amount of the work is € 148,775.50, subsidized by the Walloon Region to the amount of € 109,185.86, as part of the field of heritage policy conducted by the Minister PREVOT. This additional support will thus enable project engineers to finalize their works of analysis and survey of the building.

Meanwhile, the dignitaries of the Compagnons de Saint-Hubert and administrators can return to their seats in the stalls in the choir of the Basilica.

YOUR FREEDOM WILL BE SCOFFED

ALARM ! ! !
As reaction to the Paris attacks, the European Commission has just adopted a proposal for the modification of the European regulations concerning the detention of arms by private persons.

This proposal includes : the prohibition of detention of semi-automatic arms by private persons. http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-15-6111_fr.htm

There is no correlation between this proposal and the attacks in Paris, which means that the EU follows apparently a policy of  disarmament of the population and that it uses every occasion to try to reduce systematically the liberties of the population. 

If this proposal would pass, nothing prevents the EU from forbidding other types of sports and hunting arms.

We thus have to react to stop this proposal !

TO SPREAD AT THE MOST ! ! !

At first, we ask you at the most to sign the petition, via the link below and to spread the message around you. Other actions will follow.
