In the Dutch nature reserve Oostvaardersplassen to over 1.150 species of deer and horses in the shortest possible period. For 980 red deer you don’t see any other solution than them.

The number of grazers in the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve last autumn increased to more than 5,000. But many animals died this winter of starvation. According to a special advisory committee, however, there are still too many animals and need their number ‘drastically’ down, inter alia, to the nature the time to give to recover.

This would in the future only space for approximately 1,500 animals, says the Wednesday.

Some of these animals are lucky and allowed to move. So are 180 konik horses welcome in other areas in Europe. For the Heckrunderen – less than 160 – there is plenty of space. But for more than a thousand red deer you don’t see any other solution than them.

In the Limburg municipality of Houthalen-Helchteren emerged earlier this month, a riot over the firing of loose fallow deer, fifteen in total.
