According to local press, two hunting seats in Billiger Forest in Euskirchen (North Rhine-Westphalia) were set alight on the 20th of August. This is not the first time that persons unknown have targeted Billiger Forest.
A total of eighteen hunting seats and towers have been destroyed in Billiger Forest since the beginning of the year, either by cutting or by setting on fire.
On the 26th of August in Eitzendorf (Lower Saxony) a hunting hut on wheels was targeted too. Animal shit was found smeared over the walls, equipment was stolen, tyres slashed and windows broken.
In between the 29th of September and the 2nd of October, the police reported a total of 17 hunting towers felled in Erzgebirgskreis (Saxony) using a chainsaw.
On the 8th of October, a hunter in Vilsbiburg (Lower Bavaria) realised that the central locking nut that holds the high seat together had been removed when he fell of the tower as soon as he sat on it. He then checked another seven towers in the area that had been manipulated in the exact same way, leaving no visible marks to identify the the towers were broken but ready to fall as soon as someone used them. The police has recommended the hunters to check the towers and seats before using them to avoid injury.
Meanwhile, on the 10th of October the fire brigade responded to a call reporting a hunting hut on fire in Königslutter (Lower Saxony).
For the creative award, in June a hunter in Cuxhaven (Lower Saxony) reported that someone had set up a trap inside of his hunting tower. Using holes and a rope, someone prepared a mechanism that would ensure that as soon as the tower’s door was open, a bucket of manure would fall on top of the hunter’s head.
All game keepers are scum bags, the “game” shooting industry is trash and the way it decimates the wild and the environment all over the country is disgusting and needs to stop. When we found out these pieces of shit in Shropshire were trapping and killing birds of prey we had to act. We took a trip to the shooting estate near Chelmarsh and found the whole place covered in traps – larsens, fenn traps and bird of prey traps – which we destroyed.
The pheasant pens became another target for our rage and we completely dismantled them. We raided their sheds and stole disgusting family photographs of the murderers, proudly displaying their past trophies, their guns and dead birds, smiley happy family days out killing.
There were three partridge release pens, still full of birds waiting to be shot. We returned in the night and released over 100 captive birds from those pens, then smashed the fuck out of them. Those partridges will now be free and not just a flying target for sick murdering fucks to shoot.
With this action we send a clear message to this game keeper and game keepers all over – you fuck with birds of prey, we fuck with you. Fuck with the wild and expect retribution.
This action is dedicated to Waka, murdered by Daesh three years ago. We continue the fight for liberation in your name.”
To read about the expose on the shoot and their birds of prey, head to the HSA website:
“During several nights, we took a total of 239 hens from cages and aviaries.
What can I say when it’s still the same and still the same? When the dust, the stench, the halls full of feathers, the screams of stolen lonely lives are not lost anywhere? That sometimes it hurts a lot and sometimes even more? That it’s a kind of instinctual sadness? That one of the few moments when it’s better inside is the moment we leave the hall and a couple of hen girls with us? Time to smile that at least someone, at least a few lives, we took from that desperate industrial misery and out of unkind human hands.
I feel sorry for those who are staying behind in those halls, and more and more of myself stays there with them.
We thank everyone who provides safe homes, everyone who helps us find them and everyone who supports us, for example by a good word or by sending a message about rescued animals. This story is yours too.”
A memeber of @djurfront was recently sentenced to pay a fine of SEK 8,732 which is around 866 euros, £734 or $1002. This fine was given after someone started a siren during a demo at a mink farm in Glommen, Sweden. A friend of the owner of the fur farm claimed he suffered damage to his hearing and reported the activist for assult.
This comes after a series of police repression against actvists protesting the disgusting mink farm owned by Niclas Petterson, who has himself attacked multiple demonstators over the years.
There has been continued pressure applied on Niclas and his mink farm from both over and underground actions. Including the staging of his own funeral in his front garden and an arson attack on his vehicle as well as regular protests.
Suport the campaign and those fighting it, show solidarity with the mink and those taking action to get them out.
Fuck fur farms and anyone invloved in the fur trade.
May the mink escape their cages and eat their captors.
“On 09/18/2021, ten pheasants and quail were freed from captivity at the E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area in Oregon.
Fencing was cut at the sides and the top edges of the enclosures, then we stepped in and guided the birds toward the holes and watched them fly away into the night. A few birds hid in the grasses and we were unable to help them exit, but we left places cut in the fencing where they could escape.
In solidarity with all those who use direct action to fight oppression. For the wild!
