Three men were charged over the past week in connection with poaching across the Famagusta district.

On Thursday, a 57-year-old man in Frenaros was stopped by police who found a trapping net in his car at about 7am.  He was charged in writing and released.

Just an hour and a half later, a 62-year-old from Paralimni was caught with 54 limesticks and a CD player with two megaphones and a device mimicking bird sounds. He too was charged in writing and released.

On September 30, members of the game and fauna service found a net tied on iron poles at the Potamos area in Liopetri. The men stayed on scene until the 32-year-old field owner arrived. The net was confiscated and he was charged in writing.

Between 4:45am to 1pm on the same day, police confiscated a CD, six small dead birds, a megaphone, 25 metres of electric cables, a USB, four nets and six metal poles from a field in Laitziani in Avgorou.

At 7pm, a 38-year-old from Xylofagou was charged after members of the game and fauna service confiscated two wild bird trapping nets.
