third dead sea eagle in a month – latest poisoning event in Ireland

Project Manager Dr Allan Mee examines the carcass with the schoolchildren who found it

A third white-tailed sea eagle has been found poisoned in the space of one month in Ireland. The latest victim was found by schoolchildren on a kayaking trip in Kerry, within one kilometre of  the other two poisoning incidents. It is suspected that farmers in this area are placing sheep carcasses laced with poison to kill the eagles.

When will these stupid, selfish bastards stop? Probably not until the penalties for raptor persecution are increased substantially.

    Whoever is responsible for this should be thrown into prison. It’s utterly disgusting.
