A Responsável Territorial do PACMA, Ana Belén Martín, está na Galiza a trabalhar intensamente e contra-relógio para que o Ministério do Meio Ambiente e Ordenamento do Território da Xunta de Galicia (que só podia ser PP) ordene a suspensão da IX Taça de Espanha de Caça à Raposa. Os montes da Galiza transformaram-se em campos de batalha para as raposas.
O objectivo desta iniciativa é matar tantos espécimes quanto for possível, atentando indiscriminadamente contra a vida dos animais e contaminando o meio ambiente.
O PACMA (Partido Animalista Contra o Maltrato Animal – o correspondente espanhol do nosso PAN) está empenhado em pôr fim à caça.
Eu não disparo. STOP a Caça à Raposa!

Hunting with dogs is a cruel and barbaric sport which serves no purpose in today’s society. Dogs do not hunt foxes by natural instinct, but must be trained and encouraged to do so.
Foxes live mainly on earthworms, rodents, beetles and carrion, not livestock as some would have you believe. They are pack animals and regulatie their own populations as many studies have shown. Being a close relative of the domestic dog, Foxes can feel fear and pain in just the same way.
Hunts also slaughter over 10,000 hounds every year. Most are considered too old to hunt after six years and are shot (there are no retirement homes for old hounds) whilst younger hounds will be killed if they don’t fit in with the rest of the pack or aren’t good enough at hunting.
Current legislation allows EU members to determine their own laws regarding hunting with hounds. Lets ensure that Europe sets a precedent by banning hunting with hounds across EU member states!
