Ban on hunting of the Houbara Bustard



The chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has banned the hunting of the Houbara Bustard.

He said that after the 18th amendment, every province has a right to protect its wildlife. He added that the Houbara Bustard is declared an endangered bird in the province, therefore, no one local or foreign, will be allowed to hunt.

He emphasised anyone guilty of violating the law will be dealt accordingly.
