Children's song about a fox stealing a goose is BANNED from a German town after a vegan protests about its 'upsetting' lyrics

A German town has banned a popular children's song - about a fox stealing a goose - from being rung out from its town hall tower after a vegan resident complained the melody was making her upset.

Residents in the storybook town of Limburg an der Lahn in Hesse are serenaded daily by the town hall glockenspiel, which rings out a repertoire of traditional songs.

Among them is a tune called Fuchs, Du hast die Gans gestohlen, which translates as 'Fox, you stole the Goose'.

The children's song talks of hunter shooting a fox with his gun, and contains lyrics such as '[he] takes a little shot at you, so you're tinged with red, and then you're dead.'

The woman reportedly objected to a line in the song that says: 'the hunter will get you with his gun.'

The unnamed woman, who works within earshot of the town hall, has complained that just hearing the tune distresses her.

The fact that the tune played from the tower was given a purely instrumental version was apparently no consolation to the woman.

In response, town hall leader Marius Hahn has banned the song from the list of approved tunes, saying he did not want to be a 'monster' to the woman.

He also said there had been no complaints from atheists about the inclusion of traditional song 'Wem Gott will rechte Gunst erweisen' - meaning 'Whoever God wants to bestow his favour on'.

Vegans apparently think that they are entitled to special consideration.

Everyone in that town should complain about every other tune, as well. Shut the whole thing down.
