Re: Ibex hunting in CH

The petition falsely claims that they pay CHF 20k to the canton, when in fact they pay CHF 13k, and only applies to VS and not GR.
Does it really matter how much, or to whom, they pay?

Lastly, they need to cull 450 annually in VS (and 500 in GR), so one way or other they will be hunted and shot.
Is it really good for the population to 'cull' the healthiest adult males? Studies seem to show that average animal size isn't suffering as a result, but that's not all there is to it.

Better by far, surely, to cull the old and weak, and/or the excess young, and very tasty, population? Meat isn't murder, but trophy hunting seems to many to be close.
