Portugal expresses anger as Spanish hunters kill 500 wild animals

Authorities initiated an investigation after a large scale hunt took place in Azambuja in Portugal’s Lisbon district. Photos have shown 540 deer and boar propped up as hunters grin behind. The deer and wild boar were slaughtered by Spanish hunters, with Joao Fernandes, the Portuguese Environment Minister saying the 16 hunters’ killing of 540 animals was ’vile’ and an ’environmental crime’.

It wasn't clear whether they were following the rules or poaching. Also in the article that said it was a farm?

Man I had my hands cutting up 2 deer in one day. I xant imagine 540. Even with 16 guys. Doubt they care much about the meat though.

"The mass hunt took place last week in a walled-in farm in Torrebela, a tourist hunting zone about 24 miles from Lisbon" If these animals were being raised on a farm to be hunted, then I see little difference between this slaughter and the slaughter that occurs everyday at large farms that provide chicken, beef, and pork for the general population to consume. Perhaps there is an argument regarding waste to be had if the animals are not being eaten, but that was not discussed in the articles.

My only question is why? Sustainability is out by reports. 540 is a massive number, even one is a lot of meat. That's not hunting, doubt any hunter would disagree either. No sport in that. So why? Must have a deal going with the farm to sell the meat or something.

I'm all for hunting, but with permits. This is the type of shit that almost wiped out wildlife in the US

It just speaks to their nature. To just go and kill animals and not eat what you've killed? I don't mean "Spanish". I mean… THESE SPECIFIC imbeciles. I hope they are made to laugh while they pay the max in fines… but only after the maxed out sentance they serve, first!

Yeah but why though? And it's funny how accomplished they feel but they were probably pu$$ies and used guns instead of hunting like a real man.

Hunters wouldn't feel so superior if they where stalked and killed in the wild as they moved about naked and without arms. All Hunters are murdererous cowards.

That’s a lot of environmental contamination and waste. This was not hunting by any means. Hopefully *someone can process as much resources as possible before they rot through a knackers own ability. This act is a gross slaughter.

The Spaniards are as always they been with animals. Manimals as only they can be.

As long as it doesn't decimate the population extensively and they use the meat (ie did not kill soley for the sport of it)... then I personally have no problem

Spain is the same to Europe as Bolivia or Venezuela is to Latin America. An unwanted neighbor.

What are they going to do with all that meat? I bet it will all rot.

The title is miss leading. It is correct that most or all hunters were Spanish, but could have been any nationality. And this is not the only occurrence this year.. These estates sell "portas" where hunters can pre pay. The issue here is the portuguese law, that is incomplete and not put limits on animals that can be hunted. So the hunters have broken no law. Also it seems there no effective control . Portuguese are furious with the government!

Great. Another example of greedy, ill mannered tourist elites screwing everything up for everyone else. How the people hosting the hunt thought that this was a good idea is beyond mental retardation.

That's disgusting! Whatd they do line them up in a paddock and shoot them down with machine guns?

Awful. Just sick. There is no need to do that… even IF IT WAS SANCTIONED! This isn't an incident where people were starving. There's nobody dying of hunger… that's related to that slaughter, there isn't. IT WASN'T on no damn farm! (One comment said it was on a farm.) It was private "designated" property… and the people in charge of it heard nothing about a hunt… and especially to that proportion!
