Some are trapped in fishing nets lowered into the water and others are killed by boys with catapults
Visitors to the city have been killed. They have been targets for quite a while now. And their killings have not drawn the attention of the authorities concerned because they happen to be birds. Nature enthusiasts say black cormorant, little grebe, little cormorant, darter, egret, heron and other migratory birds that frequent the city’s tanks or wet lands are being killed, trapped, sold for meat for both fun and commercial gain.
