Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner calls for a ban on hunting with greyhounds, which in her view is contrary to the Habitats Directive, on the grounds that hunting with greyhounds is the only form of hunting in Europe where the dog chases its prey and kills it. This process is not selective and animals at risk of extinction or endangered species may be killed in Natura 2000 Network areas, in breach of both the Habitats Directive and the Birds Directive, and the EC LIFE programme for the conservation of species.
