@mtnbkrmike: never heard of that... We probably get another problem with our wild pigs and house pigs though: african swine fever. Large parts of Germany already have pigs and wild pigs which carry it or died from it and now it's only a matter of time until we will have it here in Switzerland aswell.

Cats are even worse tha dogs! One of the biggest pressures on bio diversity in central europe actually... It was fine back in the 60s when the farmers had their 2-3 cats and they actually hunted mice around the fields and the house. Now, - as an example i use Switzerland - we have ~8.5 Million people here, ~48'800 farmers and ~1.8 Million cats. Those cats are not solely hunting around the houses and fields until the next farmer home comes 2 km away. If you are in the suburbs, it's more like 20-30 cats/km^2... Guess what - there is not so much mice and they are not dependent on mice to survive, so they have an advantage too. So they hunt all kinds of quite often protected kind.

@JSTootell: overall i guess i largely stand in the same position as you. The only thing i will disagree is regarding mountainbikers hating horses... I am no horse lover at all, but have no problem with horses. I have large respect from horses and therefore also just simply break down and choose a line so the horse can see me as early as possible. I also got horses scared just by simply standing under a shelter in heavy rain and it didn't see me until the last moment. But i try to avoid it as good as possible. It's a danger to the horse rider, to the horse and me. The only point where i didn't like horses: where i lived before, is a short trail in the forest that was only like 30 s long, but very fun. It stayed wet for quite some time after the rain. So most people didn't go there until like a week after the rain. The exception were the horse riders. It ended up being a single mud hill and the forestry had to completely re-do this section. Now it's stable, but not fun to ride bikes nor horses and also unpleasent to walk...

@HankHank: besides the risk of this happening, i would also argue that it's too loud for a dog. No wonder it gets panicked with all the chainsaws etc.

Totally on your side on that one! One thing i have to mention though: it's usually not the dogs fault, it's just a dog after all. But the ignorant dog owners fault! We have leash mandate in certain regions of Switzerland for certain times of the year. They are set to protect the young roe deer etc. Every year i get some ignorant dog owner trying to tell me that he thinks that all the mountainbikers are rowdies and should not be allowed in the public forest while his dog is "just playing" with the young roe deers in the back... So yes, dog owners f***ing piss me off 99% of the time i have to deal with them.
