Question for written answer E-000051-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ana Miranda (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Slaughtering of foxes in Galicia
 Answer in writing 

Although no scientific census of the number of foxes in Galicia has been taken, the regional government (‘Xunta’) has authorised at least seven fox hunting championships across the region’s four provinces, thus promoting the senseless killing of animals without any thought to population control and even supporting these events as a collaborator and thus equating the slaughter of living beings with sport.

Will the Commission impel the Member States to use scientific methods to justify intensive hunting in certain areas?

Is the Commission aware that the European public finds fox hunting with dogs unacceptable?
