Also the lynx and the beaver can land on the hit list

In the coming weeks, the Wolf will be the focus of a heated debate. Nevertheless, it goes on 17. May vote in the referendum on the revised hunting law, not only to the question of whether, in addition to the Capricorn new this large predator regulated may be. Other protected animal species such as the beaver or the lynx can land on this list. The ruling is the sole responsibility of the Federal Council; it provides for the template.

"It's only a matter of time until the chamber pressure to expand the list," says Jonas Schmid of WWF Switzerland, one of those environmental organizations that have taken the Referendum against the revision of the law. For you, this list is nothing more than a "hit list".

The Federal office for the environment (FOEN) insures against: "The interventions will remain in Capricorn and Wolf limited." The Federal Council may designate additional species as regulated, unless "objective reasons" were available. "For the lynx, the beaver, the grey Heron and the goosander, the Parliament has rejected this, however, already expressly."

the revised law will bring you more protection. Similar to expressed recently, environment Minister Simonetta Sommaruga. "There is no occasion that we take other animals now on this list." The Parliament had already taken a very clear position, so the SP-Magistratin.

The "beaver-Trickli"

In fact, the Parliament has voted against a list of extension – however, only when the environmental groups began the referendum Mace to swing. Previously, other plans have been rolled. The former SVP of the Council of States Roland Eberle, for example, called for 2018, that the new clause in the law on Hunting should not be a "Lex Lupus". "He must also be the case for ibex, for mute swans, the beaver and the lynx."

previously had asked for in the consultation process for the new law, several cantons, the regulation of the Gänsesägers or the grey goose, some interest groups also wanted to give the bear or the Golden Jackal to the regulation-free.

There are such Attempts, to the environmental associations fear that the Parliament, after the vote on may 17. May will push for an extension of the list. To be "instead of are open, this laminated now," says Schmid of WWF Switzerland. As an example, Schmid called the controversy surrounding the beavers. Only in the last summer – the impending Referendum in the environmental groups – back krebste the Council of States, the Commission and proposed to remove the beavers from the hit list: a motion in the Parliament.

this is the "beaver-Trickli" 've tried the Parliament, an ill-made template "revamp," says Schmid of WWF Switzerland. "The advocates fear that the people are opposed to the template, if next to the Wolf and other protected animal species are on the list."

"Always keep an open mind"

Franz groups speaks of a baseless accusation. The Valais SVP-national Council has fought to the last to extend the list to the beaver and the lynx, therefore, "always with the open mind. "By the way," as groups, "the Federal Council is not free in the listing of protected species whose stocks should be regulated." He'll plausible have to prove that to the list at the end of kind of adverse impact on habitats or species diversity have. Or that a kind of cause relevant damages or specific hazards that could be prevented by interventions in the inventory.

As of the bourgeois-dominated Federal Council, with its Power over the list of design deals, you can today only speculate. "The pressure from the Parliament, but also from the cantons, will be considerable," says SP-councillor Daniel Jositsch. The harder the paradigm shift, the Revision brings weighs for SP Council of States the cantons for the kills have to listen to the FOEN only and not to obtain consent.
