Berlin - A town in Germany has stopped playing a popular children's song about a fox who steals a goose after a complaint from a vegan.

Limburg's town spokesperson Johannes Laubach told the dpa news agency on Thursday a local woman had asked the mayor to remove the tune from the town hall's mechanical carillon.

Laubach said the mayor had temporarily granted her request. The carillon - a series of bells - has a repertoire of 33 tunes, including 15 German children's songs, that are played several times a day.

The Frankfurter Neue Presse newspaper reports the woman was upset by being reminded of the song's words - "the hunter's going to get you with his gun," rather than by the fox's theft of the goose.
