    Can they arrest those who gift meat and horns to their superiors in scores annually. These are the real enemies of the wild life.

    I know this man personally . there are many many people in that area who are professional hunters and hunt scores of ibexes every year. This man in the instant case is not professional hunter and is an amateur trekker and fond of chasing ibexes and hunted a small ibex but the other guys who kill the wild goat frequently reported him to the watchers and got him arrested.
