Firefighters save wild boar piglets from drowning, then gamekeeper kills them


This is a video from Limburg province in the Netherlands, about wild boar piglets which had landed in a canal.

Firefighters then saved them from drowning.

However, as soon as the animals were back on dry land, a gamekeeper killed them.

Limburg province authorities admit the gamekeeper acted illegally.

People in Limburg have started an Internet petition, demanding that the gamekeeper’s licence to hunt is canceled.

The petition (in English) is here.
