The Kouklia police station fined a 34-year-old man from Limassol €2,000 for illegal possession of wild bird trapping gear, the CNA reports.
According to the police, members of the Game Service spotted the man in the Marinas area with a wild bird trapping net in his possession, which was confiscated as evidence.
The 34-year-old was subsequently taken to the Kouklia police station where he was issued a €2,000 fine.
In a separate incident in India, members of the Game Service acting on a tip-off stopped a vehicle for a check that was driven by a 42-year-old Greek-Cypriot man from Limassol.
During the check, police found and confiscated 15 live wild birds and a wild bird entrapment net.
Police photographed the birds and then set them free, while a complaint was filed against the 42-year-old who will be summoned to court at a later date.
