“The hunting community can no longer turn a blind eye to the recent shootings of protected birds,” the PN said.

The statement, signed by PN leader Adrian Delia, Parliamentary secretary for environment Karol Aquilina and secretary for animal welfare Mario Galea, called for hunters’ cooperation with the police and authorities.

“These actions continue to cast a shadow on the thousands of hunters that observe the law,” the PN said.

The Opposition also criticised the Labour party, saying that the recent events show that the current administration is failing in enforcing hunting laws.

“[The state] should ensure that the cases seen this past week will not continue to happen,” the party concluded.
