Bezprawne pozyskanie zwierzyny a gospodarka łowiecka – odpowiedzialność za szkody w populacji zwierząt
Illegal Hunting versus Hunting Management – Responsibility for Damages in Animal Population
Languages of publication
The regulations on the equivalent for illegal hunting, foreseen rather as an additional burden directed mainly towards poachers, are not adjusted to situations where breaches are made by entities whose statutory task is animal management, including the implementation of the hunting plan. Attempts made to execute, in court, the responsibility of persons or entities tasked with the implementation of the plan, have proved ineffective, even though the State Treasury was represented by the specialised institution, namely the Attorney General of the Treasury. Besides, no ways for effective supervision of the hunting management have been worked out that would allow for eliminating excessive implementation of the hunting plan. Since in practice, there are no sanctions for exceeding the plan though, and the mandate of regional governors (voivodes), who are responsible for managing illegally hunted animals in controlled hunting zones, are practically limited to gathering information on exceeded hunting plans from forest district offices.
