Blow against bird of prey poaching in Lebanon
Bird of prey graveyard discovered in Lebanon and three poachers caught: In the Akkar district in the north of Lebanon, we managed to strike a blow against raptor poaching. In an area known as a notorious poaching hotspot near the village of Memnaa, a hunting party was observed shooting birds of prey. The police, who were called immediately, were quickly on the scene and caught three of the perpetrators in the act. The remains of more than 40 protected birds were found with them.
