City goes after wild bird trade
Police have detained seven people for allegedly capturing and trading wild birds, after a lawenforcement campaign began on Oct 9. The two-month campaign began after more than 3,000 live birds were rescued from nets during the National Day holiday. So far, the police have removed CANADA9,310 meters of nets, raided 79 centers trading birds and found more than 1,700 birds, a spokesman for the city’s public security bureau said. Many migratory birds stop in Tianjin in autumn, and illegal netting has become a serious problem, according to authorities.
