A 24-year-old was fined €26,000 on Tuesday night for illegal hunting.

The man was spotted by game fund officers driving his car on a rural road in Kokkinotrimithia at around 8pm.

While checking his car, they found a dead hare, which they took as evidence and handed the man to the local police station.

Police then fined the 24-year-old €25,000 for killing wildlife in an area where hunting is prohibited.

On top of that, they also imposed an additional €1,000 fine for hunting without a licence.
