Activists have claimed responsibility for the destruction of eight hunting facilities in the district of Gifhorn since the beginning of the year. Beginning in January when hunting towers were destroyed in Gravenhorst, additional hunting towers have been sawed and overturned, and one tower was set on fire, near the cities of Calberlah, Isenbüttel and Wasbüttel. The initials "ALF" were left behind in paint.

Activists in Germany have also reported that a hunting tower was destroyed in the city of Ahrensfelde on the night of March 19, and several others targeted in the Landkreis Bamberg district. Read the German communiques at
