Be careful while visiting major Polish cities. Their suburbs and sometimes centres too are harassed by hordes of brutal wild hogs!! They get away with this crime as hunters are not allowed to shoot in the city. Besides, there are sucking infants and milky mothers among them.
Today a moose which was wandering in the streets of Warsaw was shot by a professional hunter. Residents are furious as the moose was harmless in their opinion. www.tvn24.pl/28385,1549512,wiadomosc.html
This is when gun control is needed. This was a big waste.
The hunter`s defence today is that there are 200 mooses living in Warsaw Kampinos Forest and that`s twice too much. He warns there will be more intrusions in the future... and claims that mooses can be dangerous, e.g., kill a man with one kick of their hoof.
Seven grey seals found in Vistula estuary Polish Radio 28.10.2008
Seven grey seals have been observed in the estuary of the Vistula River, making researchers optimistic this was a sign that the animals may be coming back to the Polish Baltic coast.
So far, it is not certain if the colony is a permanent one, meaning one in which the seals will breed. For decades there has been no information about seals being born on Polish beaches, although young seals are frequent visitors here.
A colony of some 100 thousand grey seals lived in the Baltic at the turn of the 20th century, but the numbers plummetted to 4 and a half thousand in the 1980s. At the time, seal hunting was still legal in Scandinavian countries.
The police, municipal guards, a vet and a forester chased a pregnant boar for 2 hours in the centre of Lublin. They tried to put it to sleep but the injection didn`t work, so they had to catch it in the net and take to the forest. www.tvn24.pl/-1,1592811,0,1,ciezarna-locha-grasowala-po-lublinie,wiadomosc.html
