Buzzard caught in an illegal trap and euthanised due to its injuries

4 June 2013

It has been reported that a buzzard was caught in an illegal trap in central Scotland and was subsequently euthanised as its injuries were considered too severe for a recovery. According to the Raptor Persecution Scotland blog the buzzard was found in March. The Scottish Raptor Study Group is disappointed that this incident has not been publicised by the police or PAW Scotland.
