A farmer named Shah Alam has been accused of killing hundreds of pigeons and other species of birds with poison after destroying a pigeon field in Patharghata, Barguna. The incident took place at Matherkhal village in Charduani union of the upazila on Tuesday (April 6).
Selim Mollah and Firoz Mia, the affected pigeon farmers in Matherkhal village, said the bumper crop of mugdal cultivation in the south is harvested every year during this season. When the tree bears fruit, various kinds of birds, including pigeons, gather in the mugdal field and eat food. Then some unscrupulous farmers resorted to various tactics to kill pigeons and pigeons. As there is no rain this year, the tree has not borne any fruit so far. For this reason, a farmer named Shah Alam mixed poison with rice and sprinkled it in his field to kill pigeons and pigeons. Hundreds of pigeons, pigeons and babui birds died due to the poisonous rice. While catching the infected pigeons, some people including Shah Alam chased the villagers and they fled.
The injured pigeon farmers Selim Mollah and Firoz Mia and 10/12 others will file a case with the Upazila Nirbahi Officer today seeking justice for the guilty person. They have saved hundreds of dead pigeons and doves from the fields as a sign.
Monirul Haque, range officer of Patharghata forest department, said, “I heard the matter after 10 pm.” He also said that appropriate action would be taken under the Wildlife Act in consultation with Patharghata District Executive Officer (UNO) Sabrina Sultana.
