A CULL of more than 150 deer and boar in Andalucia has prompted environmentalists to demand an investigation.
The slaughter took place on December 30 following the wildfires of last September that devastated areas in Sierra de Huelva.
Now groups are calling for an investigation with the Asnuci branding the killings ‘savagery’ and ‘carnage’.
The slaughters were given the go ahead by the Territorial Delegation as a way of reducing population numbers in order to help the area recover from the fires.
A second hunt has been authorised by the Junta de Andalucia for Saturday 13.
In a statement the Junta said that ‘wildlife control is never done with pleasure’ but ‘it is the best and only solution’.
The blaze devastated more than 4,000 hectares of forest land.
