Poachers in the news

CYPRUS MAIL: Poacher tries to run over game wardens

A 50-YEAR-old man tried to smash his car into three game wardens yesterday as they attempted to remove nets which he had placed to illegally capture blackcaps (ambelopoulia).

The three game wardens and the man were transported to Nicosia General Hospital with minor injuries after the incident, which occurred at 1.30am yesterday morning in the Liopetri – Sotira area. As soon as the 50-year-old recovered sufficiently he was charged in writing and then released by police.
