Tell Italy- Stop Exterminating Foxes

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Tuscany, Italy President Enrico Rossi, Siena Mayor Franco Ceccuzzi

The authorities of the capitol city of Tuscany, Siena, have delayed a fox hunt that was scheduled to begin April 1st for a month, until May 1st.

The Tuscan authorities intend use hunting dogs to slaughter foxes while they are still in their underground dens, many still nusing pups. Sending dogs directly into the liar to kill fox cubs is an an unusually cruel method.

Animal rights groups point out that this isn't actually a hunt, but an "extermination", to kill fox cubs while they are trapped in their underground homes by hunting dogs.

We ask the authorities in the province of Siena to block a so-called hunting initiative effective until July 31, and to ban killing foxes in their dens.
