China says illegal hunting and trading of wild animals will be severely punished

SHANGHAI – China will severely punish illegal wildlife hunting and trafficking, it said in its Friday government work report seeking to introduce a ban introduced in January following the coronavirus outbreak.

The pandemic is attributed to a fish market in Wuhan, which has reportedly sold wildlife such as bats and pangolins, and China has pledged new legislation to make the ban permanent.

Wuhan, Shanghai and other major cities have already banned the consumption of wildlife, and several provinces have also drawn up action plans to curb hunting, breeding and human trafficking.
