A large, exhausted stag escaped French hunters with the help of environmental activists after it sought refuge near a building site north of Paris, video footage showed. AVA spokesman Stanislas Broniszewski said his group had been tracking a deer hunt on Saturday when they spotted the animal. “As more and more bystanders witnessed the scene, the hunters had to retreat and let the animal go. “They are setting 50 to 60 dogs free in nature to hunt wild animals. We are taking measures to make sure certain things evolve,” French hound hunting association head Pierre de Roualle said on BFM TV.
