Capital requests temporary hunting ban after heatwave and fires.
Rome has asked the Lazio Region to suspend the upcoming hunting season in the province of Rome due to the environmental damage caused this summer by prolonged drought and devastating wildfires.
The moratorium on hunting would give wild animals in the greater Rome area the "chance to breathe" according to the capital's environment councillor Pinuccia Montanari.
Under Italian law, regions are entitled to prohibit hunting due to exceptional environmental or climatic conditions.
The 2017-2018 Lazio hunting season is scheduled from 17 September until 31 January, on select days and under strict rules.
