This has got to stop.

When two friends decided to make themselves useful and help tidy up one of Malta's most beautiful nature reserves, they never expected to find the place in such a terrible state.

"The site is clearly lacking any form of management and is in dire need of attention and conservation," they told the Facebook community of Are You Being Served.

Wied il-Miżieb is Malta's only real woodland and has been protected since 2001. Unbelievably, the people responsible for conserving it are the hunters. 

This is what Andrew Schembri and Ghislaine Calleja found within just 200 metres from where they parked.
