Wild bird hunting has been rampant in the central province of Ha Tinh’s Loc Ha and Nghi Xuan districts despite great efforts by the local authorities.

Every August and September, many people in the two districts prepare to hunt wild birds such as storks and night herons.

People take advantage of brush to set up traps with food favoured by the birds. They also use some decoys with their legs tied to a string to lure wild birds. Hunters tow the string to cause the decoys to fly to attract them.

Many decoys have become exhausted, even seriously injured white being used for this trick.

A resident in Thinh Loc Commune said the number of wild bird hunters has sharply declined thanks to strong cooperation between different local agencies to destroy traps. Local authorities have also intensified activities to help raise people’s awareness about wild animal protection.

However, the problem has continued happening in many areas in the two districts of Loc Ha and Nghi Xuan.
