According to local pro-hunt media, five separate hunting seats were attacked with wire in the south west of Germany during the afternoon of the 30th of June. One of the arsons was extinguished by a cyclist that found the tower on fire and used their water bottle to bring the flames down. Another one was reported by a dog walker, but the chair was completely engulfed in flames. The rest were reported by the local huntsman, who found them and extinguished the little fire there was left.

All the seats were burnt in open field, where there was no risk of spreading the fire into neighbouring trees, and the police suspects animal liberation activists to be behind the actions.
