Rosprirodnadzdor lost the killer whale trial from the whale prison in Primorye
Rosprirodnadzor lost the appeal court in Sakhalin. The decision of the first instance to recognize the conclusion of the state environmental review on the 13 catch of killer whales in the Sea of Okhotsk in 2018 was left unlawful.
As the head of the NGO Sakhalin Environmental Watch, Dmitry Lisitsyn, told EastRussia, the court decision has already entered into legal force. Now any further use of caught mammals for educational and cultural-educational purposes will also be illegal.
It was this expert opinion that allowed four commercial companies to catch 12 killer whales, ten of which are now in the “whale prison” in the coastal bay of Srednyaya. Earlier, the head of Rosprirodnadzor, Svetlana Radionova, stated that her office would no longer support her appeal, and on March 14 the court’s decision would enter into force, but at the last moment in the department they changed their mind and still filed an appeal.
On the fact of illegal mining of mammals opened a criminal case. Administrative cases were filed for non-compliance with the requirements for equipping a site of a water body, cleaning the water area from pollution, as well as for the lack of state environmental expertise. Later, investigators opened a criminal case on the grounds of cruelty to animals in Srednyaya Bay. Now they are examined by experts to decide which of the animals can be sent for readaptation, and then into their natural habitat.
