    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Nine wild animals were under illegal possession in a house in the Paso Canoas reported the National System of Conservation Areas (Sinac).

    In total there were seven red macaws and two tepezcuintles (or capas) whose owners did not have permits. The place where the animals were located also housed other domestic species.

    “The illegal possession of wildlife in our country of endangered species, with small populations and those that are not categorized in this way, is sanctioned by Article 110 of the Law of Wildlife Conservation,” said Paul Astúa, Acting Head of the Osa Conservation Area (Harass).

    The animals were found during a raid on Tuesday, September 2. All were taken to a rescue center located in Puerto Jimenez in Golfito. They were in good health and the property owner worked with authorities for their rescue.

    The home inspection was performed after an alert was issued by an apparent case of abuse of the animals that reside there.

    According to estimates made ​​by Jorge Hernández, Sinac specialist, the country has 400,000 different animals living in captivity. Of that amount about 70% are parakeets and parrots of different species. The remaining pets include cats, turtles, snakes and other species.
