Man caught with freshly-slaughtered birds

A 46-year-old man was arrested for killing five wild birds and illegally carrying a shotgun outside the hunting season on Tuesday afternoon in the ‘Livadies’ area near Zigi.

According to police, the man from Chirokitia was reported by members of the Larnaca game fund because he was found carrying five freshly slaughtered birds, a shotgun and five rounds of ammunition.

The items were seized as evidence and the 46-year-old was charged in writing and released. He is expected to appear in court at a later date.

The incident occurred on the same day that a 63-year-old poacher in Paralimni was caught with almost 800 dead birds.
