Hawks in danger of extinction in illegal hunting campaign

Can’t be. DDT was banned long ago?

“It’s like a return to the days of the Victorians up there; the landowners think they are a law unto themselves and the gamekeepers have to do what they’re told or they’ll be out of a job,” he said. “And it isn’t just hen harriers: our team of investigators are constantly uncovering evidence of other birds of prey being illegally shot, poisoned and trapped.” [The Guardian]

  1. Surely the reporter is mistaken. This slaughter of precious raptors couldn’t happen in gun-free England.

  2. Anyone checked under wind turbines? Maybe they are collecting the bodies and then shooting them so as to avoid detection.
