Injured buzzard rescued from trap, rehabbed & released back to the wild

Great partnership working by North Yorkshire Police, RSPCA and Jean Thorpe (Ryedale Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre) resulted in an injured buzzard being released from a trap, rehabilitated and then released back to the wild.

There’s no information about the type of trap, whether it was illegally-set, or the extent of the buzzard’s injuries, but still a job well done by all concerned.

Read the full press release and watch the video of the buzzard’s release on North Yorkshire Police website here

    Excellent! Getting the Policeman to do the release is (I hope) a win-win too. Nice PR for the NYPD, & a hands-on Constable with ”skin in the game”

    Couldn’t agree more Paul – Jean is simply fabulous and a real ‘one off” over decades. Well done yet again Jean – and the North Yorkshire police too, Take note other less dedicated forces. Great to have a happy story for a change, but like Roberta said, we can only hope it will avoid a similar fate in blood-stained North Yorkshire!.

    may the force be with that gorgeous buzzard and stop Natural England handing out licences to kill your family to protect pheasant shoot poults. ggrr
