Environment Minister to introduce regulated culling of bears after census

Environment Minister to introduce regulated culling of bears after census

“I'm ready to introduce a regulated culling of bears,” Environment Minister Jan Budaj said at an extraordinary session of the parliamentary agriculture and environment committee on Wednesday, adding that first he needs the results of a bear census that is currently underway, however. The minister opined that if he had the results by the end of September, the regulated culling could still be launched in 2022. Also the Parliamentary Chair Boris Kollar, who supports the protests against bear conservationism, agreed that no regulated culling can take place without the results of the bear census, explaining that the number of bears to be put down will be discussed with the European Commission. According to his estimates, the figure should stand between 200 and 300 annually.
