Poaching In Kamchatka
Exhausted arctic falcon was found in one of the military settlements in the suburbs of Petropavlosk
PETROPAVLOSK- KAMCHATSKIY. 2 December. VOSTOK-MEDIA. Exhausted arctic falcon was found in one of the military settlements, “Anglichanka”, near Petropavlovsk. The bird was so exhausted that could not lift up to the air. Military officers caught the bird and gave it to the veterinary team.
The caught falcon does not belong to the birds that are in high demand at the market. The feathery colour is not attractive. The veterinary specialists think that poachers just threw away the bird as less profitable.
At the moment the bird can not be let out as its pen-feathers are injured. Arctic falcon will be under veterinary care until spring.
