Another poacher arrested in Leopardovy refuge

On June 22, during the regular patrol along the territory of Leopardovy Wildlife Refuge the law-enforcement inspectors noticed two hunters with guns and backpacks.

During the pursuit, one hunter managed to disappear in the dense forest, the second was detained at the railway bridge through the Narva river, several kilometers away from Bezverhovo village, but without the weapon and a backpack. After the long search two backpacks and one unit of the weapon with a bandolier dumped in the course of a pursuit were found in a high grass. To extract the evidences, namely - presumably unregistered gun, one of the inspectors Andrey Onishchenko had to dive into cold water on depth of more than two meters to get it.

As the senior inspector of South team has informed, the detained resident of Bezverhovo village was brought to Slavyanskoe Police Department. The statement for a crime was submitted and registered. According to articles 144 and 145 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation inquiry bodies should make the decision on criminal case institution in three-day term.

This is a third fact of poachers detention made by South team in 2011. Earlier, on January 14 and on February 2, the South team apprehended poachers who were illegally hunting at the wildlife refuge territory. Criminal cases were initiated on both incidents.

    animal-lover Global Giving is the only charity I know that tells you exactly how your donations are being used. This makes me feel much more a part of saving wildlife than just making a donation and not knowing where my money went. I appreciate this ever so much and, because of this, am giving you another donation now. Thank you.
