“The gazelle was wandering in the neighborhoods of Isare. We thank the woman who, instead of slaughtering or selling it, informed agents of the Burundian Office in charge of Environmental Protection in order to capture it, “said Emmanuel Ndorimana, Permanent Secretary to the Minister of the Environment, Agriculture and Livestock.

He says the gazelle must be returned to its natural habitat to be protected from people who would eat it.

Mr Ndorimana calls on all Burundian citizens to protect endangered wild animals due to men’s intensive hunting. “Wild animals are currently threatened by poachers while they are a source of wealth for the country”.
