The Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission has appealed to the public to support its quest to salvage the depleting wildlife stock in the country by adhering to the ban on hunting, effective today, Thursday, 1 August 2019.
The five-month ban on hunting, capturing and destroying of wild animals, will end on 1 December 2019.
This is in conformity with Wildlife Conservation Regulation 1971, L.I. 685.
During this period, it shall be illegal for anybody to hunt any wild animal except grasscutter, which can only be done with a Wildlife Division licence.
The Public Relations Manager of the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission, Mr Joseph Oppong told Class News that any person who contravenes the regulation would be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine.
