Arunachal Pradesh: ABSU surrenders 23 Airguns in support of Airgun Surrender Abhiyan
The All Bogong Students’ Union (ABSU), led by General Secretary Siang Moyong, and Drafting Chairman Otem Jomang, surrendered a total of 23 Airguns to the Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), Pasighat Forest Division on April 1.
The ABSU leaders appealed to the general public of the district to surrender their airguns to stop hunting or killing birds and smaller animals as the rampant killing of animals have adversely affected the population of wildlife.
Meanwhile, more reports of surrendering of airguns are pouring in from other areas like Ruksin, Sille, Mebo, Borguli, Motum, Namsing, Mer and Gadum villages.
Divisional Forest Officer, Pasighat Forest Division, Tashi Mize, appreciated the voluntary surrendering of Airguns while cooperating with the government’s initiative to save and protect birds under the Airgun Surrender Abhiyan.
