NEW POISON DETECTION TEAMS

by | May 20, 2022 | News

KOK & DAZ welcomes the establishment of the two Poison Bait Detection teams by the Thera Service. As it is known, the poisoning in nature, over time, is a serious problem for us hunters, as it was the reason that many of our members have lost their beloved dogs.

HUNTING AND FAUNA SERVICE

The two Poisoned Bait Detection Teams, which have been set up in the Game and Fauna Service through the LIFE program "Life with the Vultures", are ready for action.

The placement of poisoned baits is an illegal but widespread practice that threatens the wildlife of the Cypriot countryside. Poisoned baits are the main threat to the endangered Fire Vulture and indiscriminately kill other species of wildlife such as eagles and very often the victims of this practice are hounds, walkers and breeders.

Poisoned Bait Detection Teams are a tool that is used successfully in many European countries and helps to effectively prevent and treat the location of poisoned baits.
