The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) is reporting that a St James man was fined $30,000 after being found guilty of breaching the Wildlife Protection Regulations.

In a release this morning, NEPA said Horace Mair had shot more baldpate birds than allowed by the regulations during the 2015 bird shooting season in Kirkpatrick, St James.

The Wildlife Protection Regulations only allow the shooting of 15 birds at a time but Mair was found with 23 birds.

After a lengthy trial in the St James Parish Court, he was ordered to pay the fine or serve 10 days in prison at hard labour.
