Croatian Radio and Television Contribution: The Capercaillie is not hunting game in Croatia


The Capercaillie, called Goran and Kvarner, was released today in a large aviary measuring 72 times 72 meters in order to get used to life in nature. Hunters call it to return to the wilderness, and a total of 14 Capercaillie will spend maybe two years in this huge cage before being released into the wild. The Capercaillie Revitalization Project is funded by the County of Primorje-Gorski Kotar.
