The Legality of Hunting in the Philippines

What does government and society do when trackers are found as well as archived in photos of their own with their day’s catch – dead Philippine wild ducks which are delegated helpless?

Obviously, they are indicted for infringement of the law, fined and imprisoned, much the same as  Balaon, a 24-year-old rancher in a well known province, who has been condemned last May 2012 to six years in jail for executing with a compressed air firearm and a single pin bow sight  , cooking, and eating a Philippine hawk. The falcon is delegated “fundamentally imperiled” with only “90 to 250 sets left in nature.”

Chasing of any sort and type is not legal in the Philippines.

Republic Act 9147, the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act, is firm in its preclusion of assortment and chasing of undermined untamed life. The administration’s  (DENR’s) Administrative Order 2004-15 builds up the rundown of compromised untamed life species. The equivalent Administrative Order expresses that all creatures recorded under  (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, otherwise called the Washington Convention) Appendices I and II are remembered for the restriction. One of the recorded animal varieties is the Philippine Duck .

BirdLife International (2013) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List for fowls express that the Duck is recorded as Vulnerable on the grounds that it is experiencing a quick and proceeding with decay infer able from broad over-chasing and the across the board transformation of its  territory

Last 2012, one provincial Governor Luis “Chavit” Singson confessed to taking lead in the famous news media, “To get away, Singson goes chasing and angling. He goes for wild ducks in a certain province. His other chasing grounds are Mindoro, Pampanga, Sweden.

Perhaps chasing is permitted in Sweden. On the other hand, in the Philippines, it isn’t permitted, it is illicit entire all year.

The humble tracker in Bukidnon who can scarcely peruse or compose is indicted for shooting an Eagle. The senator and his little girl in Ilocos are instructed and approach data about the law, yet they parade their chasing and executing of Philippine Ducks as they don’t fear arraignment. Do they think they are excluded from tolerating the law?
