Dear Readers, each October, tens of thousands of Amur Falcons (Falco amurensis) migrate through the Doyang reservoir in Wokha, Nagaland during their annual migration from Siberia to South Africa. Here, they are mercilessly targeted by hunters who kill over 15,000 of these raptors everyday for local consumption and for sale in markets. I would not recommend watching this shocking video those who cannot tolerate such heavy scenes. That’s how we often treat Nature…

This is so sad 😦
I absolutely agree with you! This is terribly sad!
Arlen, this was shocking and so disturbing on many levels..
I agree with you, dear Judy! This is really shocking and in fact this is going on in 21th century! Really sad! These men do not do that for their real need (though it is not a justification in any way!), this is a real and very symptomatic example of human cruelty!
Thank you very much for your comment! Very much appreciated!
I was especially struck by the children too. A tradition that is being carried over to young people who will never really understand that what they are doing is cruel.
You are so right Judy! It’s a pity that representatives of young generation are also involved in this crime! 😦 They treat falcons with such indifference.
Thank you very much!
Thank you for the warning as I chose not to watch the video. Anytime I see animals being mistreated it deeply affects me. What a shame that in this day and age some people still have no regard for the life of innocent animals. Thank you for sharing and raising awareness.
Thank you dear Éva! The video is really terrible! 😦 They treat the falcons with such a cruelty! They treat the each life with such indifference! 😦 Very sad! Human beeing are often so cruel!
Thank you for understanding and support!
It is very sad that some people out there have no feelings towards animals. They are all a gift from our Creator. To be taken care of and to be cherished. Thank you for bringing it to the attention of the world and spreading the word.
Dear Eva, thank you so much for your VERY sincere words. I appreciate very much! I am flattered by your comment! Thank you!
Dear Arlen, it is my pleasure. I have a passion for animals and it hurts my soul when they are being mistreated. I hope the world wakes up and listens to their voices. They too have a voice and deserve to be heard.
Have a wonderful day!
I wish the world listen to your sincere and very important words! Thank you Eva, thank you so much! You are one of my close and permanent followers in the internet and I am very glad to have a friend like you! I’m honored with that! Thank you!
It is the very least that I could do Arlen! I wish I could do more. I am glad to know that I am not alone in my passion to care for those who do not have a voice. Thank you for caring so much and I am honored to have a friend like you as well.
Thank you to dear Eva, thank you so much for your tenderness!
Thank you for this, Arlen!
I considered it my duty to do so!
I discovered this thanks to you! Thank you! Much appreciated!
Thanks, I hope this will contribute to raise awareness worldwide to stop the falcon killing in Nagaland!
Thank you! I hope so, too!
Arlen dear, I watched the video! Disturbing! Terrible! It’s very shocking … I cried!
What do these people is a crime! Not fully agree with their criminal actions! They knowingly destroy nature!
All their criminal actions are premeditated and this should be incriminated!
I understand people’s struggle for survival! But not allowed for mass killing, birds or animals! Government there must find solutions that help people to live a decent life. Providing them with jobs, people have the possibility to buy food for each day. Not be forced, by hunger, destroying the biosphere.
I hope the authorities empowered to take action and apply the law to a halt this destructive act!
Hope you have a good day, dear Arlen! Be blessed with beautiful life! Stefania fondly! 🙂
Dear Stefania, I agree with you – people’s struggle for survival does not allow for mass killing of animals! I hope that the authorities will find a solution. This is very sad! This is a signal for everybody!
Thank you for your kind attention! I really appreciate that!
Hello dear friend Arlen, good quiet weekend, a warm hug and a kiss .. Carla
Thank you Carla, I wish you nice weekend too!
—-> saymber typing with hands over her eyes….omg Arlen I just couldn’t watch. The mere thought of these beautiful birds being treated like common poultry (and I respect chickens but) is mind boggling. UGH!
I had the same feelings when first saw this! 😦 Really terrible! How can this be?
Thank you so much for your emotional and very sincere comment. Thank you dear Saymber!
Oh! ….how awful! xx
I 100% agree with you! 😦
Shocking and really horrible. Unfortunately human greed knows no borders 😦
That’s too sad… Dis-like 😦
that being said, Arlen, i just read something that i HAD TO copy paste for you…
умирает старый армянин и наказывает детям: “берегите евреев”
-С ними покончат, за нас возьмутся.
Agreed: “like”, but don’t like. One little bit…
Thanks for the warning; the pictures were heart-breaking enough.This is terrible. I am so sorry.
I had no idea. Keep up the good work! God be with you.
God be with you and your Family too, dear Tonette! Thank you so much! Now is 9:48 PM in Yerevan and I started my day with you sincere wish! Thank you!
