Belgium has charged two government officials for breeding, releasing and then shooting muntjac deer. Two forest rangers, one from the Nature and Forest Agency and one from the Agriculture and Fisheries Agency, are to go on trial in Leuven for breeding muntjac, releasing them into the wild, shooting them and selling the meat. European pro-hunting group FACE condemns this practice.
