On the 12th February Gábor Fűri, a volunteer of the environmental education Dropie made a shocking discovery. Near the town of Kolárovo he found a protected raptor Buzzard, trapped in an iron folding trap, helpless and in an excruciating pain. The trap cut and broke his leg, which was held together only by the tendons. The area is part of the project area LIFE Energy, which involves the mapping of the electrical lines. The police and State Nature Protection were called to the place and after inspecting the place it was clear that illegal activities had been carried out over a longer period of time. Fixed iron trap is also dangerous to people.
