A Mongolian falcon used for hunting has been sold for 911,000 Qatari riyals (about Rs 1.95 crore) in Doha.



The bird of prey is an integral part of culture in the Gulf States, where the winged creature plays a major role in the citizens who use them for small game hunting and other activities collectively referred to as falconry.

The other top bids for falcons were 202,000 Qatari riyals (Rs 43 lakhs) by Jaber Mohamed Salem Ali Al-Hajri and 171,000 Qatari riyals (Rs 37 lakhs) by Mohamed Thwab Al-Qahtani.

According to the organizers, the first prize of $3,000 for the Most Beautiful Falcon Hood was won by: Pepe Para Hoods from Spain and Sahara yacht of the UK won second prize of $2,000.

The winners are determined by the organizing committee on the basis of votes by the members.

“This is considered the largest and most important specialized exhibition, making it the center of attention,” said Badr Mohamed Saab, Executive Director of Bader Al Emarat Hunting and Travel equipment company said.

The awards were first presented in 2018 for supporting craftsmanship and traditional industries.
