Successful action against illegal songbird hunting in Italy


In recent weeks, CABS staff on the island of Ischia have collected extensive evidence of the illegal trapping and shooting of Whinchat, Wheatear and other protected migratory birds. The material, including videos showing two men trapping birds, was handed over to the forest police. During house searches, 20 ready-to-use songbird traps, two unregistered shotguns with ground-off serial numbers, 800 rounds of ammunition and several freshly killed songbirds were seized. Criminal proceedings were initiated against the suspected poachers for violation of the hunting and weapons laws.
