Alleged deer poachers arrested after chase

Today, February 3, two poachers were detained during a routine patrol by the Southern anti-poaching team in Leopardovy Wildlife Refuge near the Bomburovo military reservation.

During the inspection of the protected area (PA) the team noticed six people dressing a killed roe deer. Shortly, the poachers left the bag and went every which way to continue hunting. The inspectors decided to follow the violators. After more than four hours of pursuit two poachers were detained. Both men had blood-stained backpacks with illegal guns and knives. The suspected poachers were handed over to Khasansky police office for further legal action.

According to the results of Southern team's work in 2010 fifty-four violations of environmental regulations at the Leopardovy wildlife refuge and on adjacent territories were revealed and prosecuted.

Chief enforcement officer Eugeny Stoma said the team operates successfully thanks to variable strategy and tactics.

We are now conducting surprise raids in the PA and along its borders, even in deep forest, and at night. We have found it rather easy to trace these illegal hunters during winter season by tracks on snow. However, unfortunately, they had numerical advantage and manage to elude us sometimes. This time we could only detain two poachers out of six.”
