Malta: 27 trapping sites dismantled, 263 birds seized


During the last two weeks CABS reports have led the police to 27 trapping sites used for illegal trapping. Thanks to the swift response of the officers 24 persons have been identified as suspects and are expected to be taken to court for trapping during the closed season. 33 sets of clap nets and a total of 263 live birds were confiscated. The biggest case so far was discovered yesterday when the E.P.U. inspected a compound near Siggiewi. The officers discovered active clap nets and a huge illegal collection of live birds including Red Throated Pipits, Dotterels and various buntings including one Rustic Bunting. A total of 107 live birds were seized.
