Simon King watches the bucks strut their stuff in the New Forest in southern England, chasing the does and scrapping with their foes!

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

‘Licence to shoot fallow deer in Zeeland was illegal’

Today, 13:17

Zeeland province should not have given permission for shooting fallow deer in two of Zeeland’s nature reserves. This the court decided today, writes regional broadcaster Omroep Zeeland.

According to the court of Zeeland and West-Brabant, the province has not proved that in the nature reserves Manteling Walcheren and Kop van Schouwen there actually are problems for the welfare of the animals in large populations. For other arguments of the provincial authorities there was insufficient evidence, according to the court.

Protected species

Fallow deer are a protected species. In principle, they should not be hunted. Provinces are allowed to grant exemptions for hunting, but that may only happen under certain conditions.
