After a vegan animal rights activist complained about a children’s song in which a fox steals a goose, the German town of Limburg has removed the tune from the town’s carillion lineup.

The song, which features the line, “The hunter will get you with his gun,” is one of 33 played by the carillion, a series of bells that plays a song and is connected to the town’s clock at the town hall.

According to The Telegraph, the song goes on to say the hunter "takes a shot at you/ So, you’re tinged with red and then you’re dead." The fox is then advised to steal a mouse rather than the goose.

Although the words of the song are not part of the instrumental carillion's tune, the vegan activist knew the words and said she thought of them when the song played.

“There is no ideological motive behind this, but it is a temporary time-limit for a woman who works close to the town hall, listening to the clock every day — and is annoyed by the song,” said Dr. Marius Hahn, Limberg’s mayor, The Telegraph reported.

The song, known in German as “Fuchs, Du hast die Gans gestohlen,” is being reviewed, the Telegraph reported.
