Winter hunting ban in the Netherlands

This is a Dutch video about pheasants.

Translated from Vroege Vogels radio in the Netherlands:

January 11, 2010 16:06

Hunting was temporarily banned because of the continuing cold in the province of Utrecht. The ban starts this Monday, the province said.

Until the end of the month pheasants, wood pigeons, mallards and rabbits cannot be hunted, because the animals are particularly vulnerable to cold. The killing of animals which cause damage to agricultural land, such as the Egyptian goose, is temporarily not allowed as well. The killing of foxes and roe deer is not prohibited.

Ponds, rivers and even commercial fishery operations in Florida are full of dead or dying fish, victims of this month’s unusually long cold spell, according to MSNBC, The New York Times, and many other media reports coming out of the “sunshine state.” While no species is completely immune to the cold, tropical fish populations appear to be suffering the most: here.
