The purpose of the meeting, was no other than to analyze the problem that exists with the exceptional plague of rabbits that invade the fields in this area of The Stain, the plague which, as is well known, is causing widespread damage to agriculture, and is generating a variety of problems, always being the scapegoat of societies of hunters and, consequently, the most affected, both economically and for the many accusations that are being generated towards the group of hunters.
You’ll never be farther from the truth! No one can prove, nor are there reasons for this, the culprits are hunters, but they are the only ones that, to date, with their means, their time, and their own economic resources, are trying to dampen the effects of this scourge, using all the legal means at its disposal to make them less culpable in the situation of the farmer and agriculture in general
The consequence of this situation –and in payment for his efforts, especially economic– is that hunters have to endure on a daily basis all the pressures, complaints and even insults and bad ways, on the part of those who suffer the crop damage and, logically, are not willing to continue in this situation, being this the main reason of this meeting, in which, above all, what has been tried is to find solutions for all.
The solutions more immediate pass because the regional administration, which makes it a deaf ear to the problem, and in the levels of responsibility in their various departments, will decide to act and take responsibility in both the social problem that it is generating as of the economic problem, that it is increasingly difficult to assume for societies.
Hence, the requirement immediate for that Promotion, Environment, Agriculture, other organs such as the hydrographic confederations and Adif, and on the other hand, the Federation of Hunting of Castilla-La Mancha, and the provincial delegations of hunting, I act now!, and it is required and will be required to who represents the hunters, do so immediately. You can’t continue in this situation!
Hunters and societies will continue to act and looking for solutions for all the legal channels, acting to apply all the exceptional measures, if any, that is, in this exceptional plague of rabbits.
