Great International Demonstration in Bamberg, Germany
against the “Bavarian Day of the Hunters,”
April 5, 2008
Put on by: Association for the Abolition of Hunting –
Perhaps you are aware of the protest
vigil that took place on the opening day of the Museum Man
and Nature in Munich, Germany, where, for the first time,
the famous brown bear Bruno, now stuffed, was displayed.
There was quite a bit of news coverage of this event, and
what was expressed over and over again is the fact that:
become a symbol - a symbol for the way people treat

killed by hunters - for the simple pleasure of killing.
become a symbol of how politics treat the animals:
Bruno became a political problem and the solution was to
kill the bear!
chew the bark off of trees because they are driven from
their habitats of fields and meadows and escape to the
woods for fear of the bullets of hunters, the solution
is: Kill them!
