Background (Preamble):

ENGLISH
(Scroll down for Serbian, please)

It is not necessary to be a biologist or a ranger in order to spot that
there are no wild animals in most parts of Serbia. It is sufficient to be a
humane person and have a walk in a forest or a plane and notice that there
is no life, except plants’. There are even no unprotected birds, let alone
the protected ones. You may spot a hare here and there what concerns
bigger animals, but in thirty visits to nature you’ll see only one
ran-over fox with its dead offspring.
In spite of these facts, the officials do not undertake a measure, which
is adopted in many countries – ban hunt. May be hunting is not an
exclusive cause of the deserted nature, but it is certainly the main one.

Not only because of the numerous guns in merciless hands, but also for the
disturbance, which hunt causes in an area for a long time, and also
because of the hurting of people, which often occurs. Instead of the
«traditional» chases, followed by folk’s festivities, the last could be
organised with shooting artificial targets and lectures of celebrities,
who promote animal rights.

It is also known that artificial raising of «game» causes misbalance in
nature, because the so raised individuals do not comply with the rules,
characteristic to their species. For instance, the ducks from incubators
do not hatch their eggs, in that way reducing the total number of «fowl».
Here we do not ponder over guesses whether there is criminal in hunting
in general, «mafia», abuses etc. We are concerned with the well-being of the
natural world in our country. Therefore we demand

1. Ban on all kinds of hunting, including chases, for at least three
years, in all seasons.
2. Permanent ban on hunting migrating birds in all seasons.
3. Strict control of every kind of fishing.
4. Escalating all penalties for breach of the aforementioned and all
existing limitations, permanent disarming inclusive.
5. Permanent ban on breeding “fowl”.

At the end of the second year it will be possible to allow hunting boars
(exclusively), if they become very numerous in some areas. Such a permit
will be issued by the Ministry of agriculture, water management, and
forestry.

The aforementioned measures will be carried out on the whole of the
Serbian territory. Adequate non-governmental organisations should be
included in the control of their implementation. They should also help
hunters to take care of their dogs, if they don’t want to keep them. The
NGOs should aid the organisations, that live of hunting, to organise
tourist or ecological activities, the so called “safari-tourism”,
excursions with cameras etc. There are many more persons with cameras than
those with guns.

SRPSKI

Nije potrebno biti prirodnjak ili šumar da bi se uočilo kako u većem delu
Srbije nema divljih životinja. Dovoljno je biti humana osoba i prošetati
šumom ili livadom, pa primetiti da nedostaje život, sem biljnog. Nema ni
ptica, koje nisu zaštićene – zeba, slavuja, ševa, senica, detlića,
prepelica, mišara – a kamoli zaštićenih. Od krupnijih životinja ćete možda
primetiti ponekog zeca, ali u trideset poseta prirodi videćete samo jednu
zgaženu lisicu na putu sa nastradalim mladunčetom.

I pored toga, nadležni ne pribegavaju meri kakva je doneta u mnogim
zemljama – zabrani lova. Možda nije lov isključivi krivac za pustu
prirodu, ali je sigurno glavni. Ne samo zbog brojnih ubojitih pušaka u
nemilosrdnim rukama, već i usled uznemiravanja, koje lov prouzrokuje na
duže vreme u određenom predelu, a brojna su i ranjavanja ljudi. Umesto
“tradicionalnih” hajki s narodnim veseljem, mogu se organizovati narodna
veselja sa gađanjem glinenih golubova i posetama istaknutih ličnosti, koje
zastupaju zaštitu životinja.

Poznato je i da uzgoj “divljači” dovodi do neravnoteže u prirodi, jer se
uzgojene jedinke ne ponašaju u skladu sa zakonitostima, svojstvenim
njihovoj vrsti. Patke iz inkubatora, na primer, ne izlegu nasađena jaja,
pa se tako smanjuje i broj divljih jedinki.
Ovde se nećemo upuštati u nagađanja da li i u ovoj oblasti postoji
kriminal, “mafija”, zloupotrebe itd. Nas zanima dobrobit živog sveta u
našoj zemlji, stoga zahtevamo

1. Zabranu svake vrste lova, uključujući hajke, na najmanje tri godine, u
svim sezonama.
2. Trajnu zabranu lova na ptice-selice u svim sezonama.
3. Trajnu zabranu uzgajanja pernate “divljači”.
4. Strogu kontrolu svake vrste ribolova.
5. Znatno pooštravanje kazni za kršenje ovih (i dosadašnjih) ograničenja,
uključujući i trajno oduzimanje oružja.

Na kraju druge godine moratorijuma moći će da se dozvoli lov na divlje
svinje (isključivo), ukoliko se pokaže da su se one prenamnožile u nekim
oblastima.

Ove mere će se sprovoditi na području cele Republike Srbije. U nadzor nad
njihovim ostvarivanjem treba uključiti odgovarajuća nevladina tela, koja će
takodje pomagati lovcima da zbrinu svoje pse, ukoliko ih ne žele zadržati, kao i organizacijama što žive od lova da se bave turističkim i
ekološkim delatnostima, tzv. safari-turizmom, izletima s kamerom i
fotoaparatom i sl. Daleko više osoba poseduje fotoaparat, nego pušku.
