Paste feathered creature traps: Macron suspends use in the midst of EU line

French President Emmanuel Macron has requested trackers in southern France to stop the questionable act of catching feathered creatures on stick secured twigs.

The suspension follows an admonition to France from the European Commission that it could confront lawful activity at the EU level if the training proceeded.

France is uncommon in Europe for as yet enduring the paste technique, used to get thrushes and blackbirds.

The chasing technique is restricted to five districts around Marseille and Nice.

President Macron's choice came when he and Minister for Ecological Transition Barbara Pompili met the top of the French chasing campaign, Willy Schraen, at the Élysée Palace in Paris on Wednesday.

It is a suspension of the training during the current year, pending a legitimate conclusion from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on the issue.

Moderates state the paste strategy is non-specific and unfeeling, hurting warblers as well as different winged creatures, for example, robins and tits.


EU Birds Directive encroached 


In July the European Commission - which implements EU law - allowed France three months to address its interests, cautioning that inability to follow the EU's 2009 Birds Directive could mean a case at the ECJ.

The Commission cautions said France "has approved a few techniques for the catch of winged animals, for example, stick for thrushes, nets, and snares for skylark and pigeons, which are not specific and are illegal by the Directive.

"Part States may criticize from specific arrangements of the Directive yet just under severe conditions that are not satisfied for this situation, particularly in light of the fact that the vast majority of the species caught are not in acceptable protection status."

The Commission says at any rate 32% of the EU's winged animal species are presently not in great protection status and in France, among the 64 species that can be pursued, just 20 are in acceptable preservation status.

Yves Verilhac, speaking to BirdLife International in France, stated: "Around 64 species can be pursued in France, not at all like the Netherlands which just permits two. The EU normal is 30 species, making France the most lenient nation for trackers."

Thierry Coste of the National Federation of Hunters (FNC) told the Euractiv news site that the trackers' techniques were at that point carefully managed.

"Trackers catch thrushes for their birdsongs," he said. "They watch exacting standards, for example, explicit hours of the day, delivering different fowls and cleaning them."
