Poacher Arrested in India
10 dead bird carcasses, all migratory birds, were found near Abhimanapur under Tangi wildlife range, killed by Narendra Swain. The dead birds included 4 gadwalls, 3 purple moorhens and 4 large teals were taken from him.
The man was arrested in Odisha by the wildlife personnel. The poachers used nets to capture and kill the birds at Chilika lake. This lake has become more popular to poachers as there are thousands of birds that migrate here for the winter.
To try and stop the poachers from hunting birds here, the wildlife division have tried to take precautions: "We have set up at least 19 camps in the entire lake with deployment of over 50 forest personnel to keep constant vigil on the poaching activities," he said.
