Hunting group Kaccaturi San Ubertu has leaped to the defence of BirdLife Malta CEO Mark Sultana who has been the target of insults over the NGO’s fight against the illegal hunting of protected species.

Sultana has been receiving insults on his Facebook profile, as well as private messages. The messages follow BirdLife Malta’s flagging of protected birds being killed during the hunting season.

Kaccaturi San Ubertu (KSU) condemned the behavior and reassured Sultana that “any KSU member found to be one of these few perpetrators will face expulsion”.

“Not being a member of an official hunting and trapping organisation means one cannot renew their hunting and trapping licenses. KSU invite the Police to take all the necessary steps and investigate the persons who BirdLife felt intimidated by,” it said.

The NGO said it always believed in rational discussions, good relations and mutual respect with everyone, even when in disagreement.

“On the other hand, KSU remind BirdLife about the remarkable change in mentality, where the absolute majority of hunters respect our hunting laws. In a democratic society, the actions of a few undesirables should never lead to tarnish the law-abiding majority. Our laws are there to castigate the few remaining people who believe they are above the law.”
