2 accused over illegal bird hunting

Two men have been accused of illegal wildlife hunting and trade in Chongming District, the city’s greenery authorities said yesterday.

A man, surnamed Zhu, from Xinhe Town, is investigated after six dead wild birds were found in his fridge. They were spotted doves, which are on the preservation list, according to the district’s forestry station.

The discovery was based on a tip-off and police say that Zhu illegally hunted them in a forest near Tianxin Village.

Zhu confessed that he planned to eat the birds, police said.

In another case, a suspect surnamed Li will stand trial for selling two live falcons to another man, surnamed Lu, for a total of 6,300 yuan (US$886).

Falcons are a second-class national protected animal in China.

Lu kept the animals in his office before the pair were nabbed by law enforcement. The falcons have been released.
