The Partnership UPA-COAG has expressed great concern over the statements of the minister of Environment of Castilla y León, after his visit to Brussels, and, however, they will adopt preventive measures and good practices to reduce attacks.
This agrarian organization considers a lack of respect that is put “in the disparadero once more to the ranchers,” talking about imposing “good practice” because expose “a supposed guilt towards those who are precisely the victims” of the attacks of this wild species.
The Partnership UPA-COAG considers it “astonishing” that with the current dynamics of economic damage, with hundreds of attacks of wolves and the loss of thousands of cattle a year, “is in doubt that the problem is going to continue in the short, medium and long term.” In any case, with a wolf management that has proven to be “so wrong”, are in evidence the current policies that will lead “irreversibly to the extermination material of the activity is extensive livestock”.
The organization of farmers and ranchers have shown their great concern for data becoming more conclusive by the increase in damage both to the north and to the south of the Duero, “which, together with, in addition, to the lack of compliance in quotas for hunting of wolves, is causing an expansion and uncontrolled of this species in our territory.”
Thus, claim that it is “surprising that once again prioritize political actions in the defense of wildlife on the survival of an economic activity key in many municipalities of the mountain as the cattle”.
The ranchers are not going to keep crossed her arms, “and as the courts have given us the reason at other times when they have ruled that the attacks of wolves south of the Duero had to be compensated by the regional Government, now we will continue to maintain all of our strength to defend the ranchers, that they are in real danger of extinction with policies as fundamentalist and sectarian”.
