STA. MARIA, Bulacan—Authorities on Wednesday arrested a man who allegedly sold endangered birds in front of his house in this town.

Julius Victor Degala, department head of the Bulacan Environment and Natural Resources Office, said Raymond Manuel, 42, was caught selling a crow and two hornbills to undercover agents from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group during an entrapment operation in Barangay Sitio Patag.


The birds were reportedly caught from the mountainous areas in Bulacan and sold for P4,000.

Degala said they turned over the birds to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources before being freed into the forests.
