Action against bird-trapping with limesticks in Lebanon.


Almost 100 limesticks dismantled in Lebanon: On Friday, a team from the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS), together with our Lebanese partners and the police, collected a total of 92 illegal limesticks on the coastal strip south of Beirut. Alongside mist-nets, these glue traps are a widespread method of trapping birds in the Cedar State. The birds are sold as delicacies on the black market. 5 bird trappers were caught red-handed by our team at their trapping sites. Apparently, some of the men had been setting their traps for a long period of time, as large quantities of songbird feathers of various species were found at the bottom of their trapping sites.
