Crackdown on illegal hunting activities

SIBU: The police in Kanowit will leave no stone unturned in a bid to control illegal hunting activities and the selling of exotic animal meat.

Kanowit OCPD DSP Tega Bilong said his department took the matter seriously and would not hesitate to take stern action against

those caught for such illegal activities.

“We warn those who are involved in selling, serving and buying the meat of these protected animals to stop it,” he said.

DSP Tega reiterated that more strict action would be taken to

ensure compliance, including carrying out integrated operations with other relevant agencies at premises selling and serving exotic animal meat to the public.

Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador, had said that he wanted to ensure all districts were free from such activities as a measure to curb illegal hunting and sale of exotic animals in the country.

He was quoted saying, “We want to curb the illegal sale of wild animals as well as unlicensed restaurants serving exotic ishes.”

Following that, all district police chiefs nationwide have been given a month to submit a report on the sale of illegal exotic animals in shops and restaurants, before Sept 18.

DSP Tega said the public with information on these activities could channel them to the police for further action.

We warn those who are involved in selling, serving and buying the meat of these protected animals to stop it.
