Re: Ibex hunting in CH

Is it really good for the population to 'cull' the healthiest adult males?
That not what they do.

From the BBC article: ""If you kill the wrong animal you pay a fine and get nothing, and you could lose your licence."

In Graubünden, he says, you cannot shoot a male unless you have first shot a female - and the hunting window is just two to three weeks to do so."

From RTS: "Mais le conseiller d'Etat a tenu également à rappeler que les bouquetins doivent être régulés. Alors qu'ils étaient 3000 il y a 20 ans, ils sont plus de 5000 actuellement. "Il conviendra de toute façon de prélever 450 têtes par année. Une fois les tirs clients supprimés, ce sont des chasseurs ou des gardes-faune qui le feront dans le respect de l'animal"."

"But the state councilor reiterated that the ibex must be controlled. While there were 3000 20 years ago, now there are more than 5000. "It would be necessary in any case to cull 450 head per year. Once you supress paying clients, it will be hunters or game wardens who will need to do it.""
