Carcasses of more than 600 pine thrushes were seized from a Romanian driver en route to Rome on motorway M7 in western Hungary, the National Tax and Customs Authority (NAV) said on Friday. An inspection of the car’s trailer revealed the frozen carcasses of the thrushes killed with a gun packed in several bags, NAV said in a statement. The driver and the passenger said they had left from Galati with the consignment and had no information either about its content or its dispatcher. The value of the birds is estimated at 15 million forints (37,000 euros). NAV has filed a report with national police, the authority said in a statement.
