We, sensitive to the fate of all animals and the environment, strongly oppose the extermination of wild boars in Polish forests by the Polish Hunting Association as part of the "fight" with ASF (African swine fever). The debris is to cover a total of over 200,000. individuals, including healthy ones (including females and weaners). In practice, the entire population may be shot off.
Hunters will receive a financial equivalent of several hundred zlotys per animal. In the face of criticism on the part of scientists and the lack of any evidence confirming that the massive knocking out of these animals will significantly reduce ASF, we demand an immediate change in the decision on this matter. The consequence of this scandalous action will be irreversible effects not only for this species in our region, but also for the natural environment in this area. Let reason and science win, not politics and hunting lobby!
