To reduce the damage done to the environment by birds and other animals, major security company Alsok began a monitoring service this summer in which people helping hunters are notified by email when something lands in their traps.

Certified hunters have been setting traps to catch boar, deer and other pesky animals and then selling the trapped animals, but checking the traps is usually done by local residents.

Securing such manpower is not easy in mountainous areas, where young people are scarce.
