Thank you, Antonieta. I couldn't recognize her in the photos. I wonder if Princess Benedikte and her family attended the hunt? It seems like they usually attend the hunt each year.

In a society that is deeply concerned over it's enviromental and ecologic impact over this Earth, the picture of a child watching dead animals is disturbing. Shouldn't we, the XXI people be teaching our children respect and love for all living things?. Just a thought, I DON'T WANT TO START A POLEMIC DISCUSSION ON THIS!!

What happens to this deers? Are they donated as food or something?. Do you know if the area is overpopulated with these animals?.Is any of the danish royals involved in animals rights patronages?.

I completely agree with your comments. There are some traditions that should just be relegated to the past.

I think what's more disturbing to me is no only the killing of innocent animals for sport. But, taking pictures with them as they are your trophies and not lifeless animals that you killed. Also, the pictures of Prince Christian with the dead animals were truly disgusting.

In France sometimes hunts are organized when there are too many deer (to protect crops) and also too many wild boars, who are dangerous for people when they are too numerous, when they cause accidents and destroy crops
it's not fun activity but this maintains a balance
maybe the same thing happens in Denmark

Hunting is part of responsible land management. Steak just doesn't appear on anyones plate out of nowhere. Animals are raised and killed for food one way or another.

Hunting is a way of life if you live on and/or own country property. If it is bothersome please don't open a thread that has "royal hunt" in the title.

Yeah I understand that, that is why I'm asking our Danish members if this animals are eaten or if there is overpopulation, something that might justify the killing of animals more than just a sport

I think many of us, with not such strong stomachs, didn't expect to see the images of the dead animals when we open the thread, but I'll keep your kind advice in mind

Maybe I should have made that clear, but I was talking about the tradition of hunting for sport/entertainment that should be relegated to the past. You are talking about hunting to maintain crops or maintain a balance. I didn't mention in my post that hunting for legitimate land management purposes should be stopped. Please don't misunderstand me.

I too think this is one 'royal' tradition that could go. Hunting for sport is a Far cry than hunting for food. Seeing the young prince 'in training' was quite odd. I know this is done, it is just not something I'm interested in. Next year when it is time for the 'royal hunt' I will remember not to open the thread!

Of all Mary's traditional duties, I think this one may be the most "cringeworthy" for her, judging by her face while looking at the dead animals.

I live in an area where hunting is a way of life (both for men and women, old and young) for all the reasons mentioned by other posters such as food, land management and recreation. Here its like a "right of passage" to go out with your father and hunt, so it appears the same for Frederik and Christian. This seems to be a family tradition for the Danish Royal Family. I respect their right to hunt and do as they please, maybe Im de-sentisized though.

I wasn't brought up around it really, and I have no issue with it. It doesn't bother me in the slightest.

It's not as if it's inhumane. It's a swift killing which is the way it should be.

i agree with both of you. it's also a disturbing image to me. it's a shame this practice is still carried out. i personally would not take my child to such thing, let alone let him touch the poor animals lying there for the sake of human entertainment. it's a cruel practice.

I think only vegetarians have the right to complain about hunting. Those deer probably had a better, freer life than the pigs, cows, chicken, that most people eat. They life in cages their whole life, those deer had a chance.
In some areas it is necessary to hunt as there are no natural predators anymore (bears, wolfes). The deer would become too many and starve in the winter.
And about Christian... He probably wasn't there during the hunt itself. Isn't it better he knows where food comes from and isn't estranged from nature?
