Illegalities are jeopardising the future of traditional trapping – FKNK

The Federation for Hunting and Conservation (FKNK) has said that “those who are trapping in the closed season are their own worst enemies.”
“The FKNK will not tolerate, or defend, those who are willing to commit such illegalities at the expense of trappers are are true members,” it said.
“Such trappers are also seriously jeopardising the future of traditional trapping for song birds and golden plovers for all Gozitan and Maltese trappers,” said the FKNK.
The FKNK stated that, “these illegalities were also fuelling the fire of those groups who want to abolish trapping on the islands once and for all. Moreover, they are using such instances as a tool to impress the European Court of Justice, which is currently deliberating to reach a verdict in the case made by the European Commission against Malta to actually abolish trapping on the Maltese islands.”
