Brigitte Bardot, the French actress, sex symbol and currently animal rights activist sent a quite strong message to Hungarian hunters and the organisers of the World Hunting Expo in Budapest.
The French actress has been in good relation with her Hungarian colleague, Natália Nagy and her husband, Attila Vincze, Blikk reported. As part of their exchange of letters, the French animal rights activist harshly formed her opinion about the Hungarian Hunting Expo in a handwritten letter. The letter roughly translates to the following:
“Pathetic! Our world is being destroyed by epidemics, our planet is drowning in uncontrolled population growth, the ecological balance is upset. Our world is subdued by barbarism. And in the meantime, you are hunting guided by a mere desire to kill. Well, go f**k yourselves!”
Natália Nagy told Blikk that she has been writing to Brigitte Bardot, who is currently dealing with the protection of Bonobo chimpanzees. According to the Hungarian actress, Bardot’s anger was mainly focused on hobby hunters, who she thinks kill only for amusement.
Hearing about the letter of the now 87-year-old Bargot, the Hungarian hunters also gave voice to their opinion on the matter. According to 24, the famous Hungarian actor Gulya Bodrogi, who happens to be a hunter and is the same age as the French animal rights activist, replied the following:
“Greetings, dear! I love your art, but no need to bother yourself with the protection of game, we will protect them and not just verbally! […] we are predators in the natural order, omnivores, and this must be accepted.”
He also added, that in Africa, where (professional) hunting was banned, the animals went extinct because of senseless killing.
Tamás Csejtei, the guitarist of Back II Back, who is also a hunter commented on the issue criticising the tone of Bardot’s and adding:
“The extremists are always the problem, the dark greens who think hunting is only about killing, but that is not true. If there were no hunting, the wild boar population would grow to one million in two years, one can imagine what the consequences of that would be.”
