"What many people don't know is that hunting sparrows is illegal."

A local gang often hunts sparrows in the countryside in Songjiang and Jinshan districts. One night in July, they were caught with a bag filled with 277 sparrows, which they had caught using torches, nets, bamboo poles and other implements, Shanghai Morning Post reported Tuesday. They were arrested by police, as hunting sparrows is in fact a municipal crime, though many locals are not aware of this fact.
