Three are Detained by Saudi Police for Unlawful Hunting and Arson

As a result of breaking the nation’s environmental regulations, three persons have been placed under arrest: two for unlawful wildlife hunting and one for arson, the Special Forces for Environmental Security said on Sunday.

The SPES said in a statement obtained by the Saudi Press Agency that Ahmed Suleiman Maqbool Al-Sharari and Zahir Dhaif Allah Muslim Al-Sharari were detained by its field patrols for hunting inside the King Salman Royal Natural Reserve without permits.

The SPES reports that they were found in possession of a gun, live ammo, and a rabbit.

According to the SPES, using a firearm while hunting without a license carries a $21,300 fine. Furthermore, hunting during forbidden times has a $1,330 charge, and collecting wild rabbits carries a $4,790 fine.

The KSRNR is the largest natural reserve in Saudi Arabia, spanning 130,000 square kilometers. Situated close to the Jordanian border in the north of the Kingdom, it is renowned for its unique landscape and cultural legacy, as well as its uncommon monuments that date back to around 8,000 B.C.

The apprehended individual, whose identity was withheld, was found to have set fire to vegetative cover in the northwest province of Hail, according to the SPES, which is investigating the arson case.
