HA NOI (VNS) — Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park's Forest Management Department in Quang Binh Province will prosecute two local persons for breaching regulations on the protection of precious and rare wild animals.
On April 13, during the patrol of a tightly-protected section, forest management forces caught Dinh Den (born 1993) and Dinh Khang (born 1994) with two jute bags. The two, who are residents of A Rem Village, Tan Trach commune, Bo Trach District, were leaving the forest when they were nabbed.
Forest forces personnel found 42.1kg meat in their bags. Den and Khang said the meat was of a chamois, which they had killed with the help of a hunting dog. They were planning to sell the meat.
A further examination of the meat by Quang Binh Province's Forest Management Department confirmed it was of a chamois.
Similar proceedings were launched against two other persons early last month.
Legal action against them has been in line with Article 190 of the Penal Code. — VNS
