Another shot buzzard found in the Scottish Borders

There’s no real will on the part of the authorities to clamp down on the men hounding Scottish wildlife to death.

6754A dead buzzard found in the Heriot area of the Scottish Borders had been shot, according to the BBC.

Police Scotland are appealing for information after the bird’s decomposed body was discovered close to Carcant Hill on 30th June. A forensic analysis revealed the bird had been shot although it’s not known whether this was the cause of death.

Well done to the new Police Scotland WCO in the Borders, PC Hannah Medley, for publicising this incident within a couple of weeks of the bird being found (her second one this year, following the discovery of a shot buzzard at St Mary’s Loch in March, which she also publicised pretty quickly – see here).
