The scope of fasting will be further clarified

Liang Aifu, director of the network transaction supervision and Management Department of the State Administration of market supervision, said that according to the relevant laws on wildlife protection, the previous focus was on the protection of rare and endangered wildlife. However, although civet cat is not listed in the national key protection list, according to the latest decision of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress, all terrestrial wild animals that are not listed in the list of livestock and poultry genetic resources are forbidden to eat. No matter whether they belong to the key protected wild animals or not, what will be in the list in the future, needs to be further improved and perfected.

Which wild animals are forbidden? Recently, Yang Heqing, deputy director of the economic law office of the law working committee of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress, made it clear in an interview with the media that we need to grasp several points in order to correctly understand the comprehensive fasting of wild animals:

First, fish and other aquatic wild animals are not included in the scope of fasting; second, common livestock and poultry, such as pigs, cattle, sheep, chickens, ducks and geese, are not included in the livestock and Poultry Genetic Resources Catalogue stipulated in the animal husbandry law according to the provisions of the decision; third, according to the relevant laws and regulations and the relevant provisions of the state, due to special circumstances such as scientific research, medicine, exhibition, etc, It can be used for non edible use of wild animals.

It is understood that the catalogue of livestock and poultry genetic resources specifies which animals belong to livestock and poultry, rather than land-based wild animals, and which animal genetic resources protection, utilization, breeding, feeding, operation, transportation and other activities belong to animal husbandry production. The livestock and poultry referred to here mainly refer to all kinds of animals domesticated through long-term labor to meet the needs of meat, eggs, milk, fur, etc. It is very different from wild animals in that it is widely used in production after long-term artificial feeding; its phenotype and wild animals have undergone essential changes, with stable economic characteristics of artificial selection; it has formed a stable epidemic prevention and control system; it is in line with international practices.

Han Xu said that since 2006, the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas has organized and carried out a nationwide survey of livestock and poultry genetic resources. Now it has basically found out the family background of livestock and poultry genetic resources, compiled the China livestock and poultry genetic resources record and drafted and formulated the livestock and Poultry Genetic Resources Catalogue. At present, in accordance with the new requirements of the decision of the peoples Congress, communication and coordination are further strengthened, and the decision is to be submitted to the State Council for approval as soon as possible.

Han Xu pointed out that at present, he is negotiating with the State Forestry and grass administration to adjust and improve the relevant catalogue and supporting regulations, and further clarify the scope of fasting. Before the introduction of the new catalogue, we will make clear as soon as possible the species that have been listed in the catalogue of national key protected economic water living plant resources or the catalogue of national key protected aquatic wildlife for artificial breeding in the form of documents.

Capture nearly 40000 wild animals

Wang Weisheng, deputy director of the Department of animals and plants of the State Forestry and grassland administration, said that as of February 26, more than 866000 law enforcement personnel, 97800 vehicles, 350000 market restaurants and restaurants, 153000 artificial breeding places, 690 illegal wildlife cases, 2919 illegal tools and wildlife were collected More than 39000 animals were collected and more than 1080 kg of preserved wildlife products were seized.

Wang Weisheng said that since the outbreak, the State Forestry and grassland administration has set up a leading group to implement the most stringent wildlife control measures in a timely and strict manner. It mainly includes: timely require more than 2800 bamboo rat and badger breeding institutions across the country to comprehensively check the health status of employees and the abnormal death or epidemic disease of breeding animals; explicitly require all places to seal, control and isolate all artificial breeding places for wild animals, stop all activities such as listing, trading and transportation of wild animals, and severely crack down on illegal hunting, operation and utilization of wild animals Animal behavior, etc.

However, at present, there are still some people who have unhealthy dietary concepts such as game nourishing. Some lawbreakers seek huge profits from illegal hunting. In addition, many wild animals are not included in the management scope and the grass-roots protection and law enforcement force is insufficient. Although various forms of special law enforcement actions have been carried out in recent years, they have not fundamentally curbed the abuse of food and illegal trade of wild animals Activities.

Liu Xuejun said that in recent years, the public security organs have continued to carry out special actions to crack down on crimes against wildlife resources in accordance with the law. Only in 2019, 13000 cases have been filed, a large number of major cases have been solved, and a large number of criminal gangs have been eradicated.

After the novel coronavirus pneumonia animal epidemic, the Ministry of Public Security issued an urgent notice in a timely manner, deployed public security organs and other relevant departments to carry out special anti - remedial actions, and thoroughly investigated and launched the case solving. The criminal investigation of wildlife related cases was started in 776 cases, 1804 cases were investigated and dealt with administrative cases, 2556 cases were dealt with, 88 thousand animal were collected, and the relevant departments were cleared up. 293000 markets, restaurants and other places were inspected.

Increase the monitoring of e-commerce platform

There are still illegal businesses on some e-commerce platforms that change the name of wild animals into secret words to trade. Liang Aifu said that the requirements of wildlife trade supervision are completely consistent both online and offline. After the outbreak of the epidemic, the market supervision department increased the intensity of network supervision. All localities shall take timely measures to require e-commerce platforms to dismount or shield or delete relevant transaction information. Several major e-commerce platforms have also taken active actions, adopting sensitive word interception, manual screening and other means to screen relevant trading information off the shelf.

According to statistics, during the action period, the main e-commerce platforms in China screened and removed more than 750000 wildlife trading information, and closed 17000 online stores or accounts. At the same time, through the national network transaction monitoring platform, the General Administration of market supervision found 33000 pieces of wildlife transaction information of e-commerce platform, and timely urged the e-commerce platform to rectify.

Whether its a secret word or a traditional name, it will enter our monitoring and sensitive words or key words library screened by e-commerce platform, and will be monitored and processed the same. Market supervision departments at all levels have also monitored e-commerce platforms and online stores within their jurisdiction. At present, the national market regulatory authorities have urged e-commerce platforms to remove, delete or block 140000 wildlife trading information. In addition to the e-commerce platform for physical commodity trading, the market supervision department also urges the online ordering platform to delete and block the ordering information of game dishes, and guides the map software service provider to clean up and delete the recommendation and positioning information of game restaurants. Liang Aifu pointed out that in the next step, we will continue to improve the monitoring means, expand the scope of monitoring, strengthen the supervision and guidance of e-commerce platforms, find and eliminate together.

At the same time, after the outbreak, the General Administration of market supervision attaches great importance to the role of the national 12315 complaint reporting platform. The market supervision departments of all localities urgently mobilize forces, adhere to emergency disposal, make every effort to ensure the smooth flow of appeal channels, give priority to and strictly investigate and deal with the clues of wildlife trade problems, and speed up the whole line in various links such as diversion, acceptance, processing and feedback.

Diffusion! 12315 give priority to wildlife trade leads

Liang Aifu, director of the network trade supervision and Administration Department of the General Administration of market supervision, said that the fight against illegal wildlife trade cannot be separated from the supervision of all sectors of society. The market supervision department provides unified complaint reporting services for the public through the national 12315 platform. After the outbreak, the General Administration of market supervision attaches great importance to the role of the national 12315 complaint reporting platform.
