A buzzard has died after sustaining gunshot injuries in Norfolk last week.
The injured bird was taken to the Toll Barn Veterinary Centre in Norwich last week by Phoenix Bird of Prey Rescue, where an x-ray revealed three shot gun pellets embedded in its body. The vets attempted to operate but the buzzard didn’t survive.
Another victim added to Norfolk’s growing raptor persecution crime tally.
