How high is the damage caused by foxes?

DP MP Guy Arendt asked the ministers how many animals the fox has killed in recent years and how much economic damage has been caused. He also inquired as to the current state of the diseases detected in the tested foxes, and also raised the question whether one should not regulate the fox population again.

«  Nous constatons que les renards pénètrent de plus en plus les jardins et propriétés privés dans nos villages et villes. À Kehlen plusieurs personnes auraient même été mordues par un ou plusieurs renards.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable et à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Agriculture, de la Viticulture et du Développement rural :

  • Combien d’animaux (poules, lapins, veaux, agneaux, etc.) ont été tués par les renards pendant les dernières 5 années ?
  • Quel est le dommage économique pour les agriculteurs et les éleveurs de petits animaux causés par les renards ?
  • Combien de renards ont été testés récemment dans le cadre de la surveillance des maladies animales ? Quelles maladies ont été détectées auprès de ces renards testés ? Quelle est notamment l’évolution de cas de maladie de Carré et d’échinococcose constatés chez les renards ?
  • Vu l’évolution récente, Madame et Monsieur les Ministres ne jugent-ils pas nécessaire de réguler à nouveau la population des renards ? »
