According to a local newspaper, last week six hunting towers near the city of Groß-Umstadt were knocked over or sawed down and completely demolished. 13 hunting towers were also damaged in the forests near Darmstadt in May. Towers elsewhere in the Rhine-Main region have been overturned and set on fire. Christian Peter, a local hunter, told the paper, "It's not fun to be a hunter, because we are often attacked." Hunting towers were destroyed so often near his home in the town of Dietzenbach, that he stopped rebuilding them. (photo: Rhein-Main EXTRA TIPP)
