27 RARE HOUBARA BUSTARDS RECOVERED FROM DERA BUGTI
Police personnel on Saturday recovered as many as 27 rare houbara bustards from Dera Bugti. According to details, on a tipoff, the security men raided the Sui Road area and foiled an attempt of smuggling the birds to Punjab. According to police, there is no department of wildlife in the district while the Quetta office has been informed about the incident.
Earlier, Supreme Court (SC) held a hearing on pleas submitted by both Federal and Provincial governments against the ban on Houbara Bustard hunt but no final decision was made. The review requests against the restriction state that the ban on hunting the bird is in violation of the law and the facts. The requests for lifting the ban also state that there is no such restriction on the hunt in both the provincial laws and according to the international agreement. The plea submitted to the SC also demands that the court should reconsider its decision.
