A week of hunting for chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) took place in Andorra from the 10th to the 17th of September. The sanctioned volume for the week was 143 animals, however, 117 animals were killed by fact.
The director of the environmental protection service of the Andorran government (Cos de Banders) Migel Rossell, explained that the quota was not spent due to the weather worsening in the principality (snow and rain on Friday and Saturday).

Three violations of the rules of hunting were recorded. Violators were fined and stripped off their hunting licenses for three seasons.
