Pakistan stops bid to smuggle endangered falcons

Pakistan stops bid to smuggle endangered falcons
BBC:

Pakistani authorities have thwarted a bid to smuggle endangered birds out of the country.

The falcons are thought to be worth about 200 million rupees (£950,000; $1.2m) on the black market.

Collector of Customs Mohammad Saqif said they were all on the endangered species list, and were being smuggled from Afghanistan to "Arab countries".

Hunting with birds is a popular sport in a number of countries in the Middle East.

Reuters news agency report that 74 falcons were recovered, while AFP news agency says 75 falcons and one houbara bustard - a desert bird hunted by falconers in North Africa - were found.

The meat of the houbara bustard is widely prized in the Middle East as as an aphrodisiac.
