Ban Bow Hunting in Denmark

In Denmark it is allowed to hunt with bow and arrow. It has been legal since 1999.

It is proven that this medieval methods do more harm to animals than normal hunting.

Both the Animal Ethics Council and Animal Protection believe that woundings are much too high in Denmark and that bow hunting makes it even worse.

It has been banned in Norway, but now they will allow it because it is legal in Denmark. Swedes can be taught in bow hunting in Denmark.

More and more countries prohibit hunting with bow and arrow, including Germany, England and Scotland.

The new government has promised better welfare for animals. To ban hunting with bow and arrow is animal welfare.

Please help the wildlife in Denmark by signing

Thank you very much

      We think humans who do this enjoy killing - very worrying for society - look at Norway !!!

      learning to kill animals life first prior to aiming at youngsters . this is in humane.

      Bow and arrow is the excruciating for the innocent animal and belongs in the dark ages. Have some empathy - one day you die too - you will wish for mercy and empathy - hope you don't have a nurse or doctor that bow hunts!
