Absolutely appalling! These hunters MUST be properly punished, laws for the punishment of animal cruelty are still in the dark ages and should be updated immediately - and not just on Malta. I certainly wouldn't visit Malta, nor support it's economy in any way, until these "hunters" disgusting abuse of the law is punished properly.
