poachers (or something like that) "only" for Wolf, Lynx, Bear... but not for resell... but competition with the hunters O/

but if we kill a Roe Deer with the car... we have to announce to the police and we can keep the meat... if we are still alive 0*\

Same here! But the police often take the meat! At least they come quickly! \O

........Canada Geese have also been introduced in Europe, and have established populations in Great Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Scandinavia, and Finland. Most European populations are non-migratory, but those in more northerly parts of Sweden and Finland migrate to the North Sea and Baltic coasts. Semi-tame feral birds are common in parks, and have become a pest in some areas. In the early 17th century, explorer Samuel de Champlain sent several pairs of geese to France as a present for King Louis XIII. The geese were first introduced in Britain in the late 17th century as an addition to King James II's waterfowl collection in St. James's Park. They were introduced in Germany and Scandinavia during the 20th century, starting in Sweden in 1929. In Britain they were spread by hunters, but remained uncommon until the mid-20th century. Their population grew from 2200–4000 birds in 1953 to an estimated 82,000 in 1999, as changing agricultural practices and urban growth provided new habitat. European birds are mostly descended from the subspecies canadensis, likely with some contributions from the subspecies maxima............
In Helsinki, Finland they seem to be almost a nuisance because of the number. (A documentary that I watched on TV a couple of weeks ago)
