Erode: Four persons have been arrested after 60 kg of venison and wild boar meat was seized from their possession in Sathyamangalam forest range, police said Monday.

The arrests were made after police found two gunny bags containing the meat in a car during a routine vehicle check at Bannari check-post in the district last evening, they said.

A country-made gun and nine bullets were also seized from the car.

During questioning, the four occupants of the car allegedly admitted that they had poached the deer and wild boar near Thalamalai forest area and were taking the meat to their village in neighbouring Namakkal district.
