Hunting during closed season: Two poachers caught in Ħal-Far
Police seize two shotguns, illegal silencers, electronic bird caller
Malta. Today at around 7am a CABS teams monitoring the fields west from the airport (Misraħ Ħlantun) filmed two hunters shooting at birds during the closed season. Both men used illegal silencers to suppress the noise of their shotguns, CABS said. The birdwatchers alerted the A.L.E. who responded very quickly and caught both men in the act. After being confronted with the fact that their illegal activity has been recorded on camera both men admitted to the charges and criminal proceedings have been instituted against them. The two shotguns and an illegal bird caller were seized. CABS praised the police officers for their quick intervention and succesful efforts to apprehend the poachers red-handed.
