During the night of Thursday to next Friday, between 10:30 p.m. and 4 a.m., it will not be possible to drive on national road 116, between Perpignan and Saint-Feliu-d'Amont.

The prefecture of Pyrénées-Orientales has indeed decided to organize a “regulation” hunt for the wild boar population in the sector, reports Actu Perpignan.

"The high population of wild boar in the department has significant consequences, particularly in terms of agricultural damage, intrusions into urbanized areas and risk of collisions on traffic lanes", state services state in a statement relayed by

The Independent


Another hunt organized in case of bad weather

Lieutenants of louveteries are therefore responsible for carrying out this administrative search on the banks of the Têt.

The two-times two-lane will therefore be closed in both directions, as will the Soler and Saint-Féliu-d'Amont interchanges towards Perpignan.

The prefecture specifies that in the event of unfavorable weather, the hunt could again take place in the sector, on the night of December 14 to 15.
