Direct action in the ESBA of Cyprus.


At first light on Friday, our CABS team in Cyprus conducted another successful anti-poaching operation together with officers from the Crime Action Team (CAT) unit of the SBA Police. After a somewhat intense chase on foot, two trappers were arrested and taken into custody and had their vehicle seized for using two huge mist-nets and a song thrush caller in Dhekelia. On site we found 6 freshly killed thrushes but also managed to rescue 2 thrushes, 1 robin and a stonechat. Since the beginning of January in close cooperation with SBA police, 4 trappers have been caught and prosecuted, 3 hunters prosecuted for using electronic decoys, 13 mist-nets, 7 callers have been seized and 21 birds (mostly thrushes) released from traps! A big thank you not only for our CABS team who have been working every day for the past month now, but also the excellent work of the SBA Police!
