Rabit and Fox poaching at Girnar Jungle


Rabit and Fox poaching at Girnar Jungle

Gujarat Samachar (Briefly translated from Gujarati)

Three persons were seen loitering suspiciously in a farm of Ranchhodbhai Dobariya in Choki village near Junagadh jungle area. Alert villagers caught them with blood – shed bag and six hunting nets used for hunting birds and small animals. They were from Vadal village near Junagadh and their names are Daya Natha Baraiya (32 years), Parbat Natha Vaghela (30 years) and Kimji Dhanji Baraiya (35 years). Police and Forest Dept. have booked them under WLPA Sec. 16, 9 & 39.

Kishore Kotecha’s Comment: Such small animal poaching is regularly being done by Devi Pujak (Vaghari) community. Mostly it is done for food. If they are not controlled soon they may become professional poachers for sake of money.
