A patrolling team from the Environment, Wildlife and Natural Reserve Protection Department at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment has caught an Arab national for selling a chita (spectacular leopard). The culprit has been booked under the provisions of the Law No. 5 of 2006 for regulating trade of wildlife, animals of rare species threatened with extinction and their products.

The man was handed over to police of Al Shamal Security Department for taking legal procedures to produce him before the public prosecution related to the environment.

The chita was sent to zoo. It will be kept there until the issuance of a decision by public prosecution.

The ministry has called on citizens and expatriates to abide by the law of the land, especially those related to the trade of wildlife, Qatar News Agency reports. People should avoid importing or bringing such animals without prior permission from authorities concerned at the ministry.

They were also asked to inform the environment control room at the Ministry through its hotline 998 if they come cross any violation. (Source)
