オアフ島で違法な毒カエルを捕獲

ローカルニュース - Fri, 03/28/2014 - 08:38
 ハワイ州農務省は、オアフ島内で州内への持込が禁止されている毒性のあるカエルを捕獲し、カエルの飼い主とされる50歳の男性を逮捕したと発表した。 今回捕獲されたのは、中央アメリカと南アメリカに生息しているヤドクガエル(Poison dart frog)で、検疫局の職員が、ハワイ州外から容疑者に向けて郵送されてきた4匹と、容疑者が自宅で飼育していた約20匹のほか、容疑者がカエルの飼育に使用していた水槽なども押収し、さらなる調査を続けている。 なお、ハワイ州の法律では、違法爬虫類を州内に持ち込んだ場合に、最高3年の懲役と20万ドルの罰金が科せられるものの、州当局では現在、違法爬虫類を当局に自主的に届けた場合には罪に問わないという特例処置を実施しており、市民に対し、違法爬虫類の飼育等に関する情報を持っている場合には、当局に速やかに届け出て欲しいと呼びかけている。
