[Hong Kong] 霧網 Mist Net trap

霧網 Mist Net trap


Around the time of Chinese New Year sometimes mist nets are put up to protect their flowers and fruit trees from birds and bats.  Birds and bats get stuck onto these nets and end up dying as they are not able to escape.  If you see this, please take a picture of the net and any birds that are trapped, mark down the exact location and report to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department. Please use terms like "illegal hunting appliances" or "suspected illegal hunting activities" in order to direct the information you collected to the correct department and team for immediate follow-up actions.  According to the Wild Animals and Protection Ordinance, it is against the law to set up traps to catch wild animals.
