The UB Post - - Domestic -

The In­spec­tion Agency of Khen­tii Prov­ince has caught and ar­rested illegal fish­ers on Novem­ber 22. Some of the peo­ple who are un­der in­spec­tion were also caught net­ting and sell­ing fish il­le­gally last year. In ad­di­tion to illegal fish­ing, they were car­ry­ing a wild boar, gazelles, frozen mar­mots, pikes, lac­quer, flu­o­rite and pre­cious stones with them. With the group was also a Chi­nese cit­i­zen who was caught il­le­gally hunt­ing hares.

Though the prov­ince fre­quently catches these in­ci­dents, those who com­mit­ted the of­fences keep re­peat­ing as penal­ties are low. In or­der to stop these illegal hunt­ing and fish­ing, the prov­ince will be car­ry­ing out a pro­ject ti­tled “In­spec­tion-2018”. There are fre­quent cases of live­stock theft, live­stock dis­eases break­outs and en­vi­ron­ment vi­o­la­tions in the prov­ince, re­ported the In­spec­tion Agency of Khen­tii Prov­ince on Novem­ber 27.
