The posts keep popping up. This time, the seller of the Eagle Owl put up another Collared Scops Owl for sale at $2200. Author: HKBWS Chuan Time: 29/05/2015 09:40
We have reported this incident to the AFCD. They have also received similar cases from the public and have been monitoring such activities. If there is adequate information, they will take corresponding enforcement actions.
We would like to take this opportunity to urge people (and remind your friends) not to buy protected birds as pets, in order to prevent fueling the illegal pet trade and facilitating the over-exploitation of the wild population which then leads to species extinction.
