RSPB Says Big Increase In Killings of Birds
The RSPB received over 1,200 reports of shooting, poisoning, trapping and disturbance of rare birds like golden eagles and hen harriers.
This figure is the second highest ever recorded by the charity. Many more are believed to have gone undetected and unreported.
Crimes against birds of prey aren`t recorded though for some peculiar reason, so don`t get included in national statistics.
It seems the Home Ofiice do not take crimes against birds all that seriously, so it appears that the police are less interested in tackling crime for which there are no figures.
Meanwhile we are in danger of seeing some species of birds completely wiped out, which can`t be allowed to happen.
