we've got signatures, help us get to 1,200 by January 10, 2009
On the newspaper Corriere Della Sera of the 2nd of July there's the announcement of the decision taken by the Province of Perugia, Italy, to kill 800 foxes in hunting territories. The reason for such a decision is that FOXES DISTURB HUNTERS. As a matter of fact hunters grow pheasant and other kinds of "game" animals in big sheds, and then "set them free" to have fun killing them. What foxes do is simply follow their natural instinct and hunt these poor animals who always lived in a cage and who are therefore an easy target. By doing this they "steal" the "toys" of hunters, who(acting instead AGAINST nature)like children play tantrums and ask the institutions to defend them from the "evil foxes", so that they can shoot down the pheasants themselves.
And what do the institutions do? Instead of laughing at them as they should, they please the hunters' tantrums.
Let's tell the President of the Province of Perugia and the Alderman Massimo Buconi, responsible for the Wildlife Programming and Management (as underlined in the newspaper's article) how much we disagree with their decision.
Due to the Urgency of the matter, feel free to personally send an email to the President of the Province and the Alderman. You can send either the Italian version of the letter or the translated one, or write your own thoughts, but please be polite and refrain from insults.
Here are the email addresses:
