An organisation offering hunting trips in Austria with a guaranteed “happy ending” involving prostitutes has been forced to cancel them after outrage from animal-rights groups.

Hunting is legal and extremely popular in Austria, and organised hunting tours for wild boar and deer among other animals are offered in many areas, with competition fierce for business.

As a result one organiser is offering hunting trips from a hunting lodge in the Neustift-Innermanzing municipality in Lower Austria's Alpine foothills.

The advert for the trip said: "After an exciting day's hunting what could be better than a cosy night for two, or even three, in a remote mountain cabin. Everything is possible.

"The hunter's return will be welcomed back by a lovely companion, and of course absolute discretion and confidentiality are guaranteed."

But the "Romantic Weekend Hunting" offer caused outrage online when details were made public by the Association Against Animal Factories (VGT).

"It is hunting with prostitutes. It seems that with money anything is possible," VGT boss Martin Balluch said. 

He called for a ban on the trips and also repeated his call for a ban on hunting as well.

The organisers of the trips meanwhile have declined to comment, and in the meantime have removed the offer from their hunting catalogue.
