A local court in Kodinar has slapped a fine of Rs 24,000 on three persons after they were arrested for capturing a flamingo in Muldwarka, a coastal area in Junagadh district.
Deputy Conservator of Forest Dr K Ramesh said that following a tip-off, the three locals were arrested and produced in the court. The bird was set free, he added. Flamingos are protected birds, normally migrants from Siberia and northern Asia.
They also breed in parts of the state, particularly in Kutch, and are a major tourist draw during this part of the year.
