Between August of last year and February of this year, the GNR carried out inspections on the exercise of hunting that resulted in 248 offenses for illegal hunting and 87 arrests.

During Operation Artémis, which took place between 18 August 2019 and 20 February this year across the nation and carried out by the Nature and Environment Protection Service (SEPNA), from GNR, 100 crimes were detected, which led to the 87 arrests.

Among these arrests, 45 were for hunting in non-game land, 37 for hunting non-game species and five for lack of hunter's license.

Still due to the inspection actions, 248 offenses were registered, 59 of which were due to the hunter not having the mandatory documentation (letter of hunter, hunting license, dog licenses, use and possession of a weapon, hunting insurance, identity card or passport).

There were also detected 33 infractions committed by the management entities of the hunting areas, such as lack of signalling of the areas for practice or in poor condition and non-compliance with regulatory standards, 13 for lack of registration of dogs and another 13 for lack of electronic identification ('chip') of the animals.
