> Subject: wildlife in Danger in Punjab
> As per wildlife protection Act of India the Chief
> wildlife Wardens of State has been empowered only to
> issue ownership Certificates in case of Animals and
> articles falling in Schedule I and II.This deadline
> has already ended. Means no ownership certificate to
> fresh applicants.
> There is move of Punjab Govt., to grant Ownership
> Certificates to applicants for
> Wildlife/Articles/trophies falling under Sch.III and
> IV of Wildlife Protection Act. It has issued a
> notification and is going to issue a Public notice
> in this context so that the Public in possession of
> these animals or articles, may get ownership
> certificate within a specified period (180 days).
> With this move the people will start
> hunting/trapping these animals (Antelopes, Deer,
> Partridges, Parakeets and most of the Birds) for
> captivity and consumption as it is being legalized.
> The state will enforce its own rules to give it
> legal sanctity. There are Chances that Landlords may
> set up wildlife farms for canned Hunting as it is
> done in south Africa.It is worth mentioning that
> State Wildlife Advisory Board Members were sent to
> South Africa. This is being opposed all over World.
> This is not a hidden fact that One of the State
> advisory Member Father Mark of Amritsar was known
> Hunter of Country and had an easy Access to State
> Bureaucracy and Political Bosses .The recently
> formed State Wildlife Advisory Board by Punjab
> Govt. includes all his Friends .The NGOs taken in
> Board has No track record in protection and
> prevention of Wildlife offences.The persons active
> in this field are victimised.The Officials holding
> charge of Saving Wildlife are protecting High and
> influential persons involved in Crime against
> Wildlife. The recent example is Killing of a Leopard
> at Phillaur in Punjab, where a leopard which has
> strayed into a room of school at night. Instead of
> using measures of capturing with nets or
> Tranquilizing Guns, it was murdered by the Bullets
> of Police. Similarly, the Challan has not been
> Presented in Court against a Sub Divisional
> Magistrate (in Hoshiarpur), who was Caught Red
> Handed while Poaching Peacocks (National Bird). A
> case against a famous Magician for keeping python
> was not put-up properly.
> The deeds of State Wildlife Department will wipe out
> all the wildlife, which is already facing
> extinction. The state Govt. is also thinking of
> issuing permission to hunt the Blue Bull (Neel Gai)
> and wild Boar in the name of saving crops.
> You are requested to take-up the matter with Central
> Govt. to put a stop upon this move.
