Videos show illegal deer hunting in Iguaçu Park – 02/08/2024 – Environment


The Federal Police in Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná, carried out search and seizure warrants this Wednesday (7) to try to find those responsible for the death of a deer in the Iguaçu National Park region.

The investigation was opened after two videos were published on social media indicating illegal hunting.

One of them shows the chase of the deer on the Iguaçu River. The other video shows the dead animal.

The face of the man riding a jet ski on the Iguaçu River while chasing the deer does not appear in the videos.

He himself films the animal in the river trying to get away from the jet ski. “Just take it,” says the man.

In the other video, the man displays the already dead animal: “Here it kills without hurting the animal”, he says.

On Wednesday morning, federal police officers carried out two search and seizure warrants issued by the 4th Federal Court of Foz do Iguaçu.

According to the PF, investigations and investigations are being carried out to try to identify the man.

“It should be noted that the death of the animal generated outrage among the local population, given the cruelty of the person being investigated,” says the PF.

The punishment provided for in the legislation for the crime of illegal hunting is imprisonment for six months to one year, in addition to a fine.

The penalty can be increased when it comes to illegal hunting committed within a conservation unit.
