Widespread poisoning of migratory birds reported at Loktak Lake

BISHNUPUR, December 5: Amidst increasing concerns following reports of widespread poisoning of migratory birds in various parts of Loktak Lake, an unfortunate sighting of the unscrupulous elements at work has confirmed the reports.

Today, a team of about 10 individuals from Karang Village of Bishnupur District were seen applying poison on the mouth of fishes and waiting for the birds to take the bait at Jaral Mathak Masang Ithing.

A number of birds that ate the poisoned fishes were seen floating dead downstream which were collected by the waiting hunters.

A number of concerned social activists and naturalists expressed dissatisfaction at the continuation of widespread massacre of the migratory birds and questioned the safety of such practice on the lives of those who are depending on the lake for their livelihood as well as those who consume the poisoned birds, while appealing to the relevant government departments to look into the matter.
