The content of Michel Beaulieu's show has been removed from all Wild TV platforms, indicates the channel's management, which is deeply disturbed and disappointed by the situation.

We do not support hunts that break the law or go against our values, continues the channel's publication on its Facebook page. However, the show's YouTube channel, which has over 10,000 subscribers, still features this content.

We stand with outdoor enthusiasts who despise poaching.
