France. Hunting. Detail of a lead cartridge for big game. The European commission has adopted in january 2021 a ban on using lead 100m around any wetland in Europe. So far in France, the ban is only 30m. In the future, the lead will be totally banned as 6000 tons of lead is put into nature by hunters every year.
