Description

After being resettled in 1906, Alpine (Capra) ibex live in colonies of varying sizes throughout the Alpine region and in the Jura mountains. Because the growth of stocks in specific colonies had negative effects on other species and vegetation, regulatory measures were taken. The regulations concerning the hunting quota for ibex stocks are based on the Federal Act of 20 June 1986 on the Hunting and Protection of Wild Mammals and Birds. The colonies are counted in accordance with the provisions on stocktaking of the Ordinance of 30 April 1990 on the Regulation of Capra Stocks, which is used in addition to stocktaking to set hunting quotas.
