In my country there are still lots of those. We'll be following this to see what they do, but because there are crooks with money they'll try their best to get away with it. I hope this gets to a happy ending. Thanks for this petition.

thank you, henriette. NO HUNTING IN NATIONAL PARKS! hunting in itself is evil and heart-breaking. the cowards who indulge in this 'sport' need to fall into one of their own traps and be left there to bleed to death.

i dunno how on earth Spain is in EU, (i know there are very good ppl there and animal lovers) but many idiots as well. Bullfighting, burning the horns of bulls and stuff like this makes me think that Spain hasn´t evolved yet

But our government is allowing the same thing, as are others, so Spain isn't the only one with a broken moral compass.
I was able to use US, and my own zipcode, but when i went to share on fb Firefox popped up saying that it was very insecure and recommended i not do it. So cut and paste is a good idea with this...Thanks Xil

Mr. Minister,
I believe that national parks should be areas dedicated to nature conservation, and dissemination of its values, as expressed by the Law 5/2007 of April 3, the network of National Parks:

"The declaration of a National Park is to preserve the integrity of their natural values​​, representative of the Spanish natural system for which has been declared, and order their use and enjoyment and awareness of their values ​​without excluding those who have some disability, promote environmental awareness and education of society, contribute to the promotion of scientific research, sustainable development of populations and the conservation of cultural values ​​and traditional ways of life compatible with their conservation. "
These objectives are incompatible with activities such as sport hunting and / or commercial. The National Parks represent a very small area around the country, which must be dedicated to the conservation of natural values​​.
That is why I am writing to express my opposition to the national parks open to hunting, and I consider it necessary that the current prohibition in the Law 5/2007 is maintained.

Best regards.

The Ministry of Environment may allow hunting within the boundaries of National Parks

The Ministry of Agriculture and Environment is preparing an amendment of the Law 5/2007 of April 3 National Parks Network. The Act currently provides in its Article 13 the ban on recreational fishing and commercial and sport hunting and commercial logging. In the event of any such activities at the time of the statement, the competent authorities shall take the necessary measures for disposal, within which to be established under the Act declarative.

However, various associations and organizations in the field of hunting are waging an intense lobbying campaign for this change goes in the sense of allowing sport hunting and / or business within the boundaries of national parks.
We believe that this modification is unacceptable. If you share our concern and believe that national parks should not be allowed hunting, sent this letter to Environment Minister Arias Cañete.

The hunters everywhere are on a killing spree--wolves, elephants, rhinos, elk, bear, etc. The NRA must really be handing out the money to Congress. The parks in the USA are being used for trapping and the hunters want more access.

This is the country where hunting dogs, "Galgos," are beaten, hanged, starved, set afire and all other manner of moral deviance when hunters are done using them. Spain may be a member of the EU, but its actions and attitudes toward animals signal a country that is far from developed in moral consciousness. Shameful. Shattering. Beyond speechless.
