15.04.11.Uron wild boars of African swine fever in the hunting grounds of the Stavropol Territory, Leningrad and Rostov regions. New outbreaks of the disease reported in the Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions.
To fight the epidemic Rosselkhoznadzor plans ubiquitous monitoring of the epizootic situation of domestic pigs and wild boars. Sick animals will be eliminated, and the stray pigs and wild boar shoot.
In the Stavropol region plague boars replaced deer
This year, in 11 districts of the region has been banned hunting of hares. Hunters were not allowed here because there are too few oblique counted. Compared to last year, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources Region, the number of birds has decreased by approximately 30 — 40%.
— It is hard to say why it happened, — Jury Gridnev, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection UK. — But there are fewer birds in all areas of the province. Now we find out, because of what happened. At the time, just as it was with partridge. First, it was not at all, then she began to appear in large numbers, and today we have her hunt.
It is possible that such fluctuations in the number of birds and animals affected by predators. One of them — the wolf — now feels like the master of nature. Each year, gray thieves are increasing. If thirty years ago, in the Stavropol region was 25 individuals for the entire region, then in 2008, the account goes on 1000 — 1500 individuals. Despite the fact that predators regularly shoot in the region are many of them, they prefer to live next to a man — where you can easily feed.
Other predator to be terrible wolf — man. People were able to almost completely eliminate the wild boars in the region, and it is beyond the power of even the mother of predators. We brought in Stavropol African swine fever, we are then started to shoot wild pigs as carriers of a dangerous virus. As a result, ecological niche occupied by wild boars were released.
— In the Stavropol region in the short term will not be able to restore the population of wild boars, — said Yuri Gridnev. — We plan to fill a niche, but the main focus lies on the deer, not the deer. Because deer — the indigenous inhabitants of these places. In the past, deer afraid to go into the woods, as there are live hogs, today these animals live peacefully in the forests. Even there were herds of 10 — 15 goals, in general, the deer in the Stavropol region is growing.
Good the castle or not, and what it may, today it is impossible to predict. Although there are many examples of human intervention in nature, whether the use of fertilizers or change the landscape, after some time turns into big problems. This happened to Manych. This saltwater lake in 50 — 60 years of the last century it was decided to desalinate to breed the fish, and it was transferred to Kuban water. To do this, the whole system was built reclamation. State, which took the decision, no longer exists, but the problems remain. First, the system is supplied life-giving water, wear, have been ruined. Water was discontinued in volumes as before, and the lake was rising salinity. It turned out that the fish that live in fresh water, were doomed to failure. Secondly, the water still flows, but not the system of irrigation. This means that the small villages and hamlets, which are in the semi-desert zone, every year floods.
Hunting for geese is canceled
Next year will be banned spring hunting for geese, and in some areas of their flight and breeding in general is prohibited. One of these places was Manych, where the path of migratory birds.
To the birds of spring were a place where no one will touch it, in the Stavropol region, a network of protected areas, where hunting is prohibited. They are located on the route of birds from the south to the north. This preserves Chogray, Manych-Gudilo, Burukshun. At this chain of safe places to shoot the geese is prohibited.
