La Chasse....

The land to the right, past the barrier belongs to the commune while the land straight on behind the 4x4 belongs to the hunt association.

Yesterday saw the opening of the hunting season round here. What that means is that grown up men dress up in camouflage gear and shoot the hell out of any living creature in their path, sometimes including people searching for mushrooms.

Of course hunting should be banned but.....if the land didn't belong to the hunt associations, it would probably be in the hands of developers and there still wouldn't be any animals there.


PS This year to give the animals and birds a sporting chance the government has decreed that hunters must wear an article of brightly coloured clothing. Well, that should give them fair warning!
