Licence to Kill.

The government is planning to sell licences for hunting holidays to kill Turkish wildlife.
the link below is to a petition mounted by change.org to oppose it.

If you have the time and inclination, please would you lend your support to try and stop the killing of Turkish wild-life which is already under threat from disappearing habitats, and pass this on to your contacts please.

Thank you for your support.

Kanga.

Re: Licence to Kill.

I thought that the Turks had already shot it all. there is nothing much in the forest opposite me but wild boar, and they can't eat these.

Maybe they intend to put a few kurds and expats onto the list.

Re: Licence to Kill.

Maybe if they wear tweed jackets or red regalia and vote Tory or ukip it isn't so bad, happy to sign it.

I think the Kurds understand their situation and can speak up for themselves, but not the animals.

Here's a part of the original petition with apologies for the translation.

General Directorate of Nature Protection and National Parks in many cities "hunting tourism" under the name published tender notices for the hunting of wild animals.
Those who pay 10 thousand pounds between the dates specified month, who pay 6 thousand pounds could shoot wild goats. Bear in many of Turkey's 15 provinces, 109 wild goats, chamois of 4 was announced hunt. 21 provinces to hunt wild goats, wild sheep, red deer, the number of gazelles and wild goat hybrid has not yet been specified.


No mention of boar on the list, they are a nuisance and do need culling, but bear? Gazelles? Aren't they endangered species in Turkey?

I could happily nominate a few expats to go on the list, is there contact info.

Re: Licence to Kill.

I've signed the petition although I don't believe the new regulations regarding hunting licences will apply to bears. The local village authorities always seem kind of relaxed about the hunting laws.
I enjoy the wildlife in Sigacik, we have a large plot of farming land so we get to see all kinds of creatures up close and personal - from eagles and owls in the outbuildings, to foxes on the kitchen window sill, and snakes and lizards on our terrace. We see squirrels on the daily school run. However in the Spring the hunters are out in force shooting boar and often come over onto our land, especially late at night/early hours of the morning, which disturbs me greatly (and the dogs). Unfortunately it's mostly our neighbours shooting so we can't really complain (we like to keep a good relationship with them, even if they are shooting shotguns on our land in the middle of the night). I think wild boar babies are the cutest things and we've been lucky enough to see them on our driveway late at night.
Here's a picture of some of the Sigacik boar posse hanging out on the Seferihisar/Sigacik road.
