Environmentalists criticise a hunting excursion for high-profile politicians and businessmen.
Every year, Tiriac is organizing his famous hunting party.
Let's stand up and in 2013, this will be history!
Extract from http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/controversy-over-romanian-elite-hunting-event
Ion Tiriac - romanian former tennis player and businessman- organizes every year a big "feudal" hunting party in Romania, which draws many local and foreign businessmen (Wolfgang Porsche - manager Porsche,Klaus Mangold - manager Daimler Chrysler, Jose Merino Jimenez - spanish banker, George Marsan - mayor of Monte Carlo, Erich Hampel - manager Unicredit Bank Austria, Alfred Baumhauer - fabricant Cartier, Siegfried Wolf - president of Magna Europa, Rudolf Streicher - austrian politician & former prim-minister, Inigo Herrera - former member of Council of Europe, Franz Rauch - Rauch Fruchtsaefte Gmbh & Co OG Austria, and more).
Last year ended the hunt party with what media and green activists called â€œtrue carnageâ€Â- over 150 wild boars were killed. In the last six years were killed around 1,200 wild boars in the Balc contained area.
Is this massacre really necessary? Why must die so many innocent animals, just because these decadent rich foreigners and Romania's so called "nouveau riche and political elite" don't know how to spend their time in an useful way???
