Last Friday a Ukrainian and two Mongolians were arrested in an attempt to smuggle forty seven falcons. A local tipped off the police. The Ukrainian (known as citizen A) and the two from Selenge Province ( M and N) are under investigation by a Special Unit of the 257th Border Forces. According to an official: forty four falcons were hidden in the loft of the citizen N’s house. The trade in hunting falcons is restricted by law; the falcon is honored as the national bird of Mongolia.
