Killing wildlife species is prohibited by law. Republic Act No. 9147, an act providing for the conservation and protection of wildlife resources and their habitats, says that if caught on-act the suspect may be imprisoned four to six years or fined fifty thousand pesos (P50,000) to five hundred thousand pesos (P500,000).
