Question for written answer E-010075-14
to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Wildlife injuries from harvesters
 Answer in writing 

When harvesting certain crops, farmers sometimes inadvertently run over wild animals with their harvesters, severing limbs and causing often fatal injuries. According to figures from the Danish Society for Nature Conservation, some 40% of young hares are killed in this way. There are no figures for young deer or birds, but we know that here too casualties are high.

1. What can the Commission do to address this problem?2. Will the Commission finance a project group to investigate the problem and come up with possible solutions?3. What possibilities exist to fund such a project?
