Boar hunters want pact with BrangelinaJune 2nd, 2008 - 4:29 pm ICT by admin
London, June 2 (ANI): Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are being urged to open up the grounds of the 17th-century French chateau they are staying in - by wildboar hunters.
Brangelina arrived at Chateau Miraval, near Aix-en-Provence last weekend, and are renting the 35-room former Benedictine priory for the next three years.
The chateau sits on a 1,000-acre estate that has vineyards, two swimming pools, a helipad, a forest and a lake with swans and geese.
However, hunters are urging Tom Bove, the owner of the estate to ensure that the environment-friendly couple dont bar them from hunting on the grounds, especially as it prevents the vineyards from being destroyed by animals.
Were waiting to hear back from Mr Bove and we hope the new residents wont ban our hunts, Times Online quoted Alain Mayen, as saying.
The environment is all very well but you have to protect the vines. Hunting is the only way to stop the vines getting damaged.
Added Michael Latz, the mayor of Correns: Hunting here is part of the local tradition. Boar and deer are harmful. If you dont hunt them, you dont get grapes. (ANI)
