Rakhiv police caught a poacher, who shot a roe
Recently a master of forest came to Rakhiv police station. The forester, during the inspection of the forest territory assigned to him, heard the shots. Having realized that it was poachers, the man immediately reported the incident to the police.
Having arrived at the scene - the territory of the Verkhnye Vodayne forestry, the police found the remains of a roe carcasse: having separated the meat and taken the head of the dead animal, the poacher had left the skeleton in the woods.
The investigation of the offense was assigned to the senior investigator of Rakhiv district police department Volodymyr Mateleha. Law enforcement officials identified the poacher.
