Maltese Bird Killers should look for a new hobby

Maltese bird trappers should look for another hobby: CABS has praised the European Commission for its efforts to take Malta to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) over its controversial decision to allow finch trapping. In a press release the NGO accused the Maltese government of painting a false picture by describing the trapping season as “well controlled”. “According to our observations the opposite is the case with massive illegal trapping and a total lack of enforcement in spring, hundreds of trapping stations built in protected areas  and rampant illegal trade and smuggling of many thousand of birds each year. Above all, allowing finch trapping is a clear breach of the European Bird´s Directive and Malta´s accession treaty to the European Union.  Instead of wasting Maltese taxpayers money to defend the indefensible Mr. Galdes should have the guts to honestly tell the trappers that their cause is lost and that they should look for another hobby”, CABS president Heinz Schwarze said.

The ECJ has opened the case against Malta over illegal finch trapping today (15 February 2017) . A decision is expected to be announced later this year.

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog audience have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

    1. Hi, I am not aware of any but that doesn’t mean that they are not there.From what I’ve learnt from a friend who is a webmaster and who has created many very big websites in their lifetime compatibility issues is a common problem because the web (and the software of devices) are getting updated too fast without being able to catch up with each other which results in glitches.So even if someone has a paid professional to look after their site and who updates,it is impossible to always do it on time.That’s how that friend explained it to me (without going into the technical software details we discussed at that time.)
      So if your blog is a blog which you earn money from then your best option is to get a professional to keep it’s language updated but to expect that he won’t always be able to do that and that will always be someone out there who has problems viewing your site.
