According to CABS five masked men took part in the assault.

A sum of 2,000 Euros will be paid out for information leading to the arrest and conviction of each of the five criminals” promises Schwarze. “It is not usually our policy to resort to such means. But in view of the escalating violence against our members we have decided that this step is now necessary”.

CABS also announced that pictures taken by them that identify poachers in the countryside will be shortly published on their website at www.komitee.de/en. “The police have not yet been able to identify all the poachers filmed by us in the last two weeks” comments CABS spokesperson Axel Hirschfeld. Anyone recognising the men in the photos should contact the A.L.E. or - anonymously if desired - the CABS office in Germany.
