Hubert Billiani, 56, is since 40 years a hunter, but he has not yet experienced. That deer stand with him in the Karwendel area on the tar road. And that chamois to the feeding systems of deer, it has also given never. The Gams is a pure self-catering and does not feed. Normally. The masses of Snow the past few days, there are Billiani and the other hunters agreed to put the Wild in the Alpine extremely. If adult deer are snowing, you might imagine how many deer and Grouse are trapped in the meter high snow, and perish.

The Bavarian hunting Association has now asked the air force to helicopter to Bales of hay in remote areas, in the reach since the days, not a hunter. "Our deer and ROE deer are ruminants", says the biologist and Association spokesman Thomas Schreder, "if you don't regularly get food, acidifies the rumen, and they die a painful death."

A deer's up to his Antlers in snow

In hunter's chat groups photos from Styria, the extent of the drama is imagined to circulate. A mighty stag is up to his Antlers in snow and would freeze to death and starve to death, wouldn't the blades be a hunter. Another animal that is seen in a short Film, is completely buried and will be dug by a hunter with the Hand - it is likely to be suffocated. "The deer that reside in the feedings, it's okay", says the Styrian professional hunter Jürgen Lechner on the phone. For all of the animals that have lived at the extreme snowfall in the periphery, he sees black.

hunters fear that many will not survive, animals this Winter.

The images from the region of Styria, the Hamburg-based lawyer and hunting law expert Heiko Granzin, for occasion, animal welfare and Anti-hunting organizations to call to pick up the snow shovel and help with the mountains of the Wild: "Living love for Animals is of course a little more strenuous when you have to wear in three feet of snow height lining bunch up the mountain, rather than in the pig stables to break in or high seats anzusägen." The response to his appeal was poor. Rather, the called animal rights activists him an "accused subterranean polemic" and noted that deer and deer for thousands of years would have survived without human help.

there's been a misunderstanding, say the hunters. To be allowed by the change in climate and a completely new extreme weather events, such as the snow masses. On the other, the humans have changed nature so much that the wouldn't get Wild without his support. "We have cut off the paths in the lower regions. There they would be safe now," says the hunter, Hubert Billiani. 250 years ago the deer out of the Karwendel overwintered in the Munich-Au, which today belongs to the downtown area. Without the feeding by the hunter deer and deer severe Winter would survive.

hunter appeal to their colleagues to leave the rifles in the closet

In this Winter, the hunters of the Alps region, expect the Worst: that the dead chamois, and ROE deer come to the fore, when the snow melts. "Actually, the Gamsbestände would have to be recognized first of all by Monitoring," says Thomas Baer, Chairman of the hunters of the circle is a group of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. However, the authorities show no mercy Even if the populations are decimated, and must comply to pay the hunters in the next hunting year, given high launch. As strict as in Bavaria, this would be handled in any other country.

What are the wild animals, if you stay in security, need besides hay? "Peace, peace, peace," says Hubert Billiani. Alone because of the cold, you consume a lot of energy. "If you are now frightened and in Stress treated, it is certain death for you." Deer, ROE deer and the highly endangered populations of Capercaillie, black grouse and hazel wild can make ski touring off. Most of the hunters have set up the hunt and call on their colleagues to leave the rifles in the closet.
