Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu today personally handed Joselito Eyala a Certificate of Commendation at Room 640 in Philippine General Hospital where the latter is confined and awaiting surgery to remove bullets lodged in his palate and back.

Secretary Cimatu lauds Eyala, a forester at DENR Palawan, for his “remarkable dedication to public service, bravery, and leadership” when he and his team apprehended timber poachers and confiscated an unregistered chainsaw in Sitio Casicaan, Barangay Bacungan, Puerto Princesa on August 23, 2017 at around 5:00 pm.

The owner of the chainsaw, Florante Saycon, retaliated by firing a homemade gun that hit Eyala at the back. Eyala sustained two gunshot wounds that rendered him unconscious.

When he regained consciousness, Eyala crawled into the Casicaan River and allowed the current to carry him for five hours. He then walked and crawled in the middle of the night until he was able to get help at around 1:00 am the following day.
