Italien – 09. 04. 2024

Operations on Ischia completed - 3 poachers convicted.


Over the past four weeks, two teams of CABS and the hunting wardens from WWF Italia have been monitoring bird migration on the island in the Gulf of Naples (southern Italy). Three poachers were convicted in close co-operation with the police (Carabinieri): A man had set 7 whinchat traps in a garden near Barano, the trapping equipment and an electronic decoy were seized. Near Forio, the police managed to convict two poachers of illegal spring hunting. Two hunting weapons and over 400 rounds of ammunition were confiscated from the perpetrators, as well as another decoy device. Because one of the hunters threatened the police officers, he was arrested and later placed under house arrest. A gun sniffer dog was also used during the police operation.
