Pelicans massacre

Wednesday, November 3, 2010 ,


The pelicans are ancient creatures, dating from The Tertiary. Since then, their number decreased by degrees, due to human intervention. So, they completely disappeared from West an Center Europe. The only place form Europe where you can admire them is the Est, most precisely, the Danube Delta.
Did you know that this is the place where, less than a hundred years ago, took place a
terrible massacre? It all began because, by their increasing number, they were considered a treat by the fishermen, and a danger to their haul. So fisherman and hunters began the carnage. And their ways were beyond words. They were reworded for each pelican leg with a cartridge. The hunters cruelty was so big that, eventually, they didn't even trouble to kill them before. They cut the legs and let them suffer to death...Sometimes, they did it even for a botlle of alcohol...
Some years after, the pelicans became protected by law....
