The political party PSOE sued yesterday the Government of Castilla León to the Comission of European Communities for allowing hunters to shoot at free roaming cows and bulls. The owner of the animals had died and they managed to survive roaming free in the fields of Llamas de Cabrera. The images of the animals trying to escape from the hunters and specially the calves trying to hide behind their mothers are shocking.

El PSOE denuncia la cacería de vacas salvajes en La Cabrera ante la UE . Reclama la comparecencia urgente en las Cortes de los consejeros de Agricultura y Medio Ambiente

El PSOE de Castilla y León denunció ayer ante la Comisión de las Comunidades Europeas la cacería de vacas salvajes que se ha llevado a cabo en los últimos fines de semana en los montes de La Cabrera. A esta denuncia se suma una pregunta escrita dirigida a la Comisión Europea y la petición de una comparecencia urgente ante las Cortes de Castilla y León de los consejeros de Agricultura y Medio Ambiente, sobre quienes, según el PSOE, recae la responsabilidad de haber autorizado una cacería «ilegal».
Más de 200 animales y más de 500 según otras fuentes han sido abatidos.
