In several areas of the Central region, chop bar owners have had various sorts of bush foods seized by officers of the Forestry Commission’s Wildlife Division.
On Wednesday, the squad seized more than 100 bush meats, including those refrigerated.
Additionally, some of the meat was taken from soup bowls that were on fire and from customers who had already purchased and eaten some of the meat.
Chop bar owners in the Gomoa East and West District, Effutu Municipality, and Awutu Senya Wast District were impacted.
Speaking to some operators who were disappointed with the wildlife police’ behavior.
They said that the cops barged into their business brandishing firearms and other dangerous weapons, inciting fear and panic.
However, Ernestina Adumia Anning, the Wildlife Division’s public relations officer, claimed that the exercise was intended to enforce the restriction on hunting bush meat.
They will soon move to the roadside to crack down on others who also sell to passengers, according to Madam Anning.
She said that the owners of the chop bars whose meat was confiscated will be prosecuted and penalized.
In the meanwhile, Ms. Anning warned the populace to avoid eating bush meat since anyone found guilty will be detained.
