Bushmeat traders abide by rules

17th June, 2017

By MARUTIN ANSIUNG

NABAWAN: The interior licensed bushmeat sellers are abiding by the rules set by the Wildlife Department.

“We have been getting rotten names because of some irresponsible people who are accused of hunting and selling meat of protected animals,” said a group of bushmeat traders to New Sabah Times.

The group spokesman Yambuhau Angindi said a recent photo of deer carcasses purportedly being sold openly in the bushmeat market had nothing to do with them.

“The photo that went around was an old photo taken several years ago,” he said, adding that their business at the Nabawan tamu is being closely monitored by the Wildlife Department.

He said the old photo was used by unscrupulous people who are against their trade.

According to him, the traders have to abide by several conditions for them to hold a licence to trade bushmeat. He said they also held regular meetings with wildlife officers and that they would cooperate fully with the authorities.

Yambuhau said that customers who come to their stalls are also prohibited from taking any photos of the bushmeat. “We don’t want the photos to be used against us,” he said, adding that they do not want anyone to have misconceptions about their business.

The Nabawan tamu operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
