< Hunting abuses harming the tourism industry >
by Herman Grech

The problem with illegal hunting had reached "epidemic" proportions and was one
of the factors dealing a blow to Malta's most important industry - tourism,
Malta Tourism Authority chairman John Grech said yesterday.

Speaking at a news conference to launch the MTA strategic plan, covering the
years 2002 and 2004, Dr Grech called for more effective enforcement to halt the
nationwide abuse which was taking its toll on the tourism product.

He said the authority had been inundated with complaints from tourists and
organisations expressing outrage over the domestic hunting situation.

"Hunting exists everywhere, but it's the abuse and the behaviour of certain
hunters which is damaging tourism."
