Speaking to Angop, the administrator of Bicuar National Park, José Maria Kandungo, explained that the poachers preferred to slaughter small animals, among them Bambis, birds and Olongos.

Of the detainees, 18 were sentenced by the provincial court with sentences up to four years in prison. The conviction was aggravated by the fact that those involved used military equipment.

The inspectors seized 487 firearms of various calibers from the poachers.
