Animal group angry at hunting prince

Animal protection group Faunabescherming is angry with Crown Prince Willem-Alexander for telling a Spanish newspaper that he hunted partridges ‘just for fun’. The organisation said it was very disappointed that the prince, who is a role model, travelled to Spain to go hunting in the wild – something which is banned in the Netherlands.
