Polic­ing the hunters

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

The hunt­ing sea­son be­gan yes­ter­day (Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 12) and dur­ing the last few weeks Elche lo­cal po­lice have been in close con­tact with the Guardia Civil en­vi­ron­men­tal ser­vice (SEPRONA) to co­or­di­nate their vig­i­lance of game re­serves.

City hall’s of­fi­cers will also be keep­ing a close eye on en­vi­ron­men­tally pro­tected ar­eas, such as the Clot de Gal­vany, places where peo­ple go hik­ing and busy recre­ational ar­eas, such as the reser­voir. The lo­cal po­lice re­minded hunters that they must keep the min­i­mum le­gal dis­tances away from in­hab­ited homes and path­ways.

A force spokesman said they have been in con­tact with the re­gional hunt­ing fed­er­a­tion and so hope that any in­ci­dents will be min­i­mal and re­spect­ing safety will be the hunters’ pri­or­ity.
