Sahih Muslim Book 7, Hadith Number 3140.

Chapter : The sacred territory of Mecca and its inviolability and the prohibition to do hunting in it and its suburbs and felling down of its trees and cutting its grass.

A Hadith like this has been narrated on the authority of Mansur, but he did not mention: “On that very day He created the heavens and the earth,” and he (the narrator) substituted the word “fighting” (qital) for “killing” (qatal), and further said: “No one is to pick up the dropped thing except one who makes a public announcement of it.”
