Registration of a carrion feeding site
Feeding with carrion requires registration of the carrion feeding site.
Feeding with carrion means setting food at a site to attract animals. The purpose of feeding with carrion is to make photographing, viewing or hunting easier. Carrion feeding sites can also be used for only feeding purposes.
The Finnish Food Authority is responsible for the register’s operation.
