On Saturday afternoon, the head of the federal agency for nature and ecology paid an official visit to the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic.
In the official program, the minister was reported to release into the nature hundreds of pheasants of the North Caucasian breed and the same number of mallard ducks.
The event took place in Lower Zhemtal, in one of the rounds of the “State experimental hunting economy” of the city of Nalchik.
Together with Kobylkin, the birds and waterfowl were released by the acting head of the republic, Kazbek Kokov.
The fact of the release of pheasants is significant in that it was the first offspring of a North Caucasian bird that biologists were able to successfully obtain in captivity.
After the event, the head of the federal department made a statement to the press about the imminent major changes in Russian laws on hunting farms.
They want to make Russia attractive to foreign hunters.
According to the minister, bills should be drafted and adopted for hunting enthusiasts from Europe so that they can visit the Russian Federation, hunt birds and animals in its territory and "feel no worse than at home."
Kobylkin assured that new developments in the legislative sphere will entail the transformation of the entire hunting system in the next 3-5 years.
