Maltese traditions should be dumped in the rubbish bin, as a Maltese philoosopher used to say.
And certainly hunting and bird trapping is one of them.

It is about time that Malta entered the 20th century, let alone the 21st, regarding these inhumane and cruel traditions.

These so called trappers and hunters should test their skills facing a moose, a deer, a croc or a bison not a two ounce bird that falls into their trap after a 20000mile journey being tired, hungry and thirty.Heard of there were cases where hunters waited them birds on boats migrating from Africa to Europe and by their first stop in Malta they're dead birds.I don't call this a hobby or sports but cruelity to nature that belongs to all NOT to hunters and trappers.Where's the EU protection ?
