Hautes-Alpes. The State's attitude towards hunting black grouse and rock pitarmigan is condemned by environmentalists

The Hautes-Alpes prefecture has received more than 3,000 opinions and attempted opinions regarding the prefectural decree "closure of hunting for the 2022/2023 seasons". The consultation was open from June 4 to June 4, and there were more than 3,000 opinions or attempted opinions posted on the Hautes-Alpes prefecture's website concerning the prefectural decree "closure and opening of hunting for the 2022/2023 season". This shows the level of interest and mobilization environmental associations have achieved.

LPO 05, the League for the Protection of Birds and FNE 05, the Alpine Society for the Protection of Nature – France Nature Environment (SAPN – FNE 05), are fighting against the hunting of black grouses and rock ptarmigans. These species have been classified as "vulnerable" or "endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List. The departmental hunting commission and wildlife commission (CDCFS), which brings together associations and state services, approved the opening of hunting for galliformes in the 2022-2023 season to their dismay. The moratorium that protected the rock ptarmigan in the hunting season 2021-2022 should be lifted and denounced by ecologists.

The bear's skin should not be sold. Effective hunting and hunting plans will be opened only after the results of the summer counts, which will determine the quality of reproduction of mountain galiformes. The Observatory of mountain Galliformes will also take into consideration the recommendations. The State services also point out that "mountain galiforms" are a national huntable species and that they are obliged to be taken into consideration, knowing that the maximum allowed number of samples is zero.

The LPO and SAPN seized them. In Marseille, an administrative court canceled or suspended their hunting in 2017, 2020, and 2021 "considering that hunting of these species in a poor condition of conservation was an aggravating cause of their decline". They announce that if there is an opening for hunting in 2022, the associations would return to justice.
