Amendment 8
Anja Hazekamp, Stefan Eck

Proposal for a regulation
Article 1 – paragraph 1 – point 1

Regulation (EC) No 1007/2009
Article 3 – paragraph 1 – point c

Text proposed by the Commission

(c) the hunt is conducted in a manner which reduces pain, distress, fear or other forms of suffering of the animals hunted to the extent possible taking into consideration the traditional way of life and the subsistence needs of the community.




There should be no exception to the EU seal regime; the prohibition should apply to all natural and legal persons equally. This makes the legislation WTO-compliant and represents the animal welfare concerns in the best possible way.
