Collared Dove in danger in Italy !

Just before to go to holiday, the deputies of our Regional Assembly deliberated to add, for the first time in Italy, the Collared Dove to the list of the game birds to bag in the Emilia-Romagna region, NE Italy, while Italian Sparrow, Tree Sparrow and Starling were add to the list in the same way. A serious threat to the former species is to be expected since people considered so far the Turtles as 'domestic' birds, feeding them largely in the main town of the region. As a consequence, it will be so easy to kill by hunters huge numbers of them in the surroundings of towns and villages. The new law permits to kill, starting from 1st September, 50 Turtle Doves for each Italian hunters !
The same public body is among the co-financers of the Po Delta Birdwatching Fair, the second edition of which is to be held in 2005:
Why not remember to the deputies that is a nonsense to promote a birdwatching fair and contemporarily to permit to kill unarmed birds ? The following is a list of emails of the deputies that voted to permit the slaughter, please feel free to write them all you want !,,,,,,,,,,,
