Dormouse Culture, Tradition & Myths

Traditional dormouse hunting has lately become increasingly interesting as an affirmation of Slovene national identity. On the other hand, the expanding ecological consciousness raises questions about this kind of affirmation. Therefore it has become a topic for ethnological research, the basis of newly-founded societies and clubs, values and norms, popular knowledge, communications, a relevant element in leisure, identity and last but not least ecology. - M.
