LAHAD DATU: The Sabah government takes a serious view of the illegal wildlife trade, including the sale of exotic meat on social media sites.

Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Assistant Minister Assaffal P. Alian said to address the issue, the Sabah Wildlife Depart­ment should press for heavy penalties on those found guilty of being involved in such activities.

“Enforce regulations, impose penalties and let the law be firmly applied on these offenders,” he said after launching the state-level Wildlife Day yesterday.

“The government does not prevent wildlife-related transactions online but there is a need to seek advice so that laws and regulations can be adhered to.” — Bernama
