Bird Hunting Permitted Barring Serious Outbreaks of Disease

The Department of Environment will continue issuing bird-hunting licenses as a matter of course unless a serious outbreak of any special disease, such as the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), is reported in a specific area.
This was the result of a meeting headed by Ali Teymouri, director of the Hunting and Fishing Office at the Department of Environment, which was to discuss precautionary measures against the possible health harms resulting from hunting, IRNA reported.
According to the official, if Iran Veterinary Organization announces the outbreak of a bird disease in a province in a written notice, the DOE is committed to imposing a ban on hunting in the area to ensure the public's safety in the face of any health threat; otherwise, Teymouri said, "the department will continue its regular procedures of issuing permits."
