PASIGHAT, Feb 10: While reiterating their earlier decision to ban illegal means of hunting and fishing in and around their jurisdiction, the Berung village has appealed the general public of East Siang and Pasighat in particular to stop fishing by dynamite, electrocution and other destructive means of hunting.
While talking to this reporter this afternoon, Orin Panggeng, President, Berung  Yameng Kebang  said that being located near hunting prone areas like Pasighat Reserve Forest, D. Ering Wildlife Sanctuary and Siang river, the village faces several problems. “During the time of Unying Aaran festival (hunting festival of Adis) hunters are often found hunting/killing our cattle and take away meat parts at the time when they do not get any wild animal during hunting”, added Panggeng . From the past couple of years we have been facing such situation when our cattle (cows and oxen) are killed by hunters at night hours for the meat which is very disturbing, added the BYK leader.
At the time when hunting festival ‘Unying Aaran’ is around the corner the concern of the village is legitimate and obvious. In view of the Unying Aaran festival, the Berung Yameng Kebang has once again reiterated the ban of illegal means of hunting and fishing.
