40 animals in sight – horror and applause: otter hunting allowed


Controversial premiere: Because it eats up many ponds and rivers, the strictly protected otter can now be killed by hunters in Styria for the first time. Some are shocked by this, others demand much more than the 40 kills allowed.

For Ingrid Hagenstein, otter project manager of the Nature Conservation Union, the situation is clear: “If you remove an otter from its territory, either by shooting or by moving, another otter will follow within a very short time. So the success is very short-lived.” The release of shooting quotas for the water marten is “very questionable both ecologically and legally”, according to the environmental organization. But from the front.
