Reports www.conservationindia.org

This is a documentation of the shocking massacre of tens of thousands of migratory Amur falcons (Falco amurensis) in the remote state of Nagaland in India’s northeast. We estimate that during the peak migration 12,000 – 14,000 birds are being hunted for consumption and commercial sale everyday. We further estimate that a mind-boggling 120,000 to 140,000 birds are being slaughtered in Nagaland every year during their passage through the state.

"The roosting place is localised (one specific bank of the reservoir) and can easily be sealed off by the authorities (Deputy Commissioner, Superintendent of Police, North Eastern Electric Power Corporation (NEEPCO) and Forest Department)." This problem seems to have a plausible solution, if the will exists to execute it.

Hope this slaughter this stop as soon as posible. I am not especially keen on hindous, but they seem much more conservationist than nagas for religious considerations, as they are vegetarians.
