Hundreds of Wild Swans Illegally Hunted in China

World Journal, news, Posted: Jan 14, 2009

BEIJING Swans are legally protected in China, which means those killing
them are put in jail. However, at least three hundred of birds are killed every day on Poyang Lake in Jiangxi Province. The World Journal reports that
underground swan hunting organizations beat up local people who try to
protect the swans. The swan hunters sell the dead birds to local restaurants for about 1,000 RMB (about $150 US) each. People representing the local
government to protect the swans said they have found no way to stop the swan
slaughter.
