(ANSA) - Florence, August 30 - Ex-minister of tourism under
the Berlusconi administration and animal rights activist Michela
Vittoria Brambilla - together with a group of Italian
celebrities - called on Thursday for the suspension of Italy's
hunting season due to this year's drought.
The group's open letter called the effect of dry weather
on wild fauna "a true 'natural state of emergency'" requiring
"provisions for the care of animal populations in difficulty".
The celebrities joining Brambilla's appeal include film
director Franco Zeffirelli, best-selling writer Susanna Tamaro,
ex-health minister Umberto Veronesi, and astrophysicist
Margherita Hack.
The Tuscan branch of the hunting association Federcaccia
noted that the letter also compared hunting animals under
current conditions to "taking up a gun in an concentration
camp".
Federcaccia called it "a comparison of dubious taste to
which it would be easy to reply that the inspirer of that
tragedy was vegetarian and truly loved animals (less, as noted,
human beings)."
