The judicial police team affiliated to the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) has confiscated animals from their owners for not complying with the grazing laws. They were caught grazing their animals in unlicensed areas. The PAAAFR spokesman Talal Al-Daihani, said the judicial police team of the authority applied the grazing law No. 41 of 1988 to the owners of violating livestock in the Al-Rawdatain area, due to their lack of commitment to the areas licensed for grazing and instead grazing their cattle by the side of the roads, which threatens the lives of citizens and residents and on many occasions has been the cause of tragic accidents. Al-Daihani explained based on the recommendations of the authority’s director general, Sheikh Muhammad Al- Yousef, the authority’s inspectors have implemented the law that prohibits grazing livestock in areas other than the permitted areas.
