Lebanon: the slaugter of migratory birds

 

Not only in Europe, more than 53 million wild birds are legally shot down by hunters each year, but also in other countries.

Several countries on the Mediterranean are famous for mass killing of migratory as resident birds. Lebanon is no exception and perhaps one of the worst culpits.

The estimated number of illegally killed birds in Lebanon is more than 2,600,000 annually.

 

Along the east-west roads, every twenty meter stands a hunter, who fires on every bird silhouette that flies over him. This sport is practiced by everyone, from rich to poor. Still mainly by the Christian Lebanese.

 

During the time that the birds migrate, cars full of hunters drive along the mountain roads or are lined up. Ready to shoot all what moves within their distance.

The sad live of Tsavo in isolation

Tsavo was condemned to a life of loneliness for economic reasons. As so often in the circus industry, he had to entertain the audience almost to the last breath in the ring.

 

On March 5, the 44-year-old rhinoceros Tsavo died in Circus “Krone” in Munich, Germany. He suffered from digestive problems for a long time and had lost 300 kilos in two months. The white rhino was the last of its kind to be displayed in a German travel circus. For the past forty years it has been kept under miserable conditions for entertainment.

Apart from many countries in Europe, Bolivia, China, Costa Rica Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Israel, Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Singapore (so-called “third world countries”) have already banned the carrying of certain species of wild animals in circuses.

Germany continues to lag behind.
