The acting head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov instructed the authorities to strengthen the fight against poaching and to create conditions for civilized hunting in Bashkir woods.

After a working trip to the Eastern regions of Bashkortostan, the head of the region said members of the government that need to deal with the issues of forests and wildlife.

«I’m not a hunter and don’t understand this passion to kill animals. That’s before the Bashkir and Russian men, if you want the bear to kill, took a tripod and went there alone. Not from a gun which at a mile beats. There is evidence that hunters buy a license and Bashkir forests come from all over the country and from machine guns to destroy all living creatures. Why is it permitted?», — said the head of Bashkortostan at the operative meeting of the government.

According to him, the license holders to hunt do not fulfill all the conditions: there is no activity on the content of the forest, feed the animals, shooting rabid animals.

«Locals are afraid to enter the forest, where the poachers with guns. This topic will deal with. Do not turn our forests into sanctuaries where we go to indulge, let go in other regions. Or hunting, must be very civilised and gentle. And anyway, in many Nations bear to kill is a great sin, in other ways it is,» said Habirov members of the government.
