Hunters target protected species and violate private property on Gozo

During the past 48 hours the CABS Bird Guards, together with the police, have once again closed down illegal trapping sites and recorded the shooting down of protected species as well as numerous contraventions of the afternoon hunting curfew.

On Sunday evening, at about 7.00 p.m. north of Selmun Palace, a team of volunteers managed to film a hunter picking up a freshly shot Little Egret and subsequently patrolling through the area carrying a shotgun.
