The Dutch province of Flevoland leave as soon as possible 980 red deer in the Oostvaardersplassen (OVP) program. About 180 konik horses to relocate to an area elsewhere in Europe.
The forestry commission must plan how the large-scale gradient can best take place. There remain still to 1,100 deer, horses and cows in the nature reserve. That will have to live in a smaller area, but with more shelter around.
That decision of the Provincial council of Flevoland Wednesday night after an hour-long debate taken. GroenLinks and the Party for the Animals were. A majority of the twelve political parties in the States, subscribed largely to the new beheeradviezen of a commission under the leadership of former state secretary Pieter van Geel (CDA).
The advice came after a severe winter in which thousands of animals succumbed. That should never happen, to find all of the Regional politicians.
