How is the population of raccoons in Luxembourg evolving?

the raccoon is an invasive species that seems to be spreading more and more in Luxembourg. Contacts with people seem to multiply as of recently. DP MPs André Bauler and Max Hahn therefore asked how the population was developing and whether measures to regulate the population were effective.

De Wäschbier ass zu Lëtzebuerg scho laang keng Seelenheet méi. D‘Populatioun vun dëser invasiver Spezies ass enorm gewuess, zënter si an den 1970er Joren zu Lëtzebuerg opgetaucht ass. D‘Upassungsfähegkeet vun dëser Spezies huet dozou gefouert, dass si sech ëmmer méi an urbane Gebidder usidelt, wouduerch et och ëmmer méi zu Kontakter mat Mënsche kënnt.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Ëmwelt, Klima an nohalteg Entwéckelung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Wéi héich gëtt d‘Populatioun de Moment geschat?
  • Ginn et verschidden Zorte Wäschbieren zu Lëtzebuerg? Wa jo, wéi eng Zorte wieren dat?
  • Op wéi eng Manéier suivéiert den Ëmweltministère d’Populatioun vun de Wäschbieren?
  • Wéi effikass waren d’Efforten d’Populatioun ze reguléiere bis elo? Wéi vill Wäschbiere sinn an de leschte fënnef Joer pro Joer geschoss ginn?
  • Hält d’Madamm Ministesch et fir noutwendeg, d’Efforten ze verstäerken? Wa jo, wat genee ass virgesinn, fir där invasiver Aart Meeschter ze ginn?
  • Ass virgesinn, d’Bevëlkerung ze sensibiliséieren, wéi ee sech verhale soll, wann een engem Wäschbier, en Déier dat net ganz ongeféierlech ass, begéint?

Extension of the death penalty in Belarus

On 18 March this year, Belarus by decree extended the possibility to be condemned to the death penalty, so that now not only people who took part in a terrorist act, but also those who attempted such an act can be punished with the death penalty. The opposition sees in this decision an attempt to suppress the free expression of opinion and the opponents of the government. How to assess this situation? Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
