Buzzard found dead in Borders had been poisoned and shot

1 September 2013

Earlier this summer the police reported the discovery of a dead buzzard that had been found near Carcant Hill, Heriot at the end of June. A post-mortem revealed the bird had been shot although it wasn’t clear whether that was the cause of death. Further tests have now revealed that the bird was killed by poisoning. PC Hannah Medley, a police wildlife crime liaison officer, is investigating the case. More details on the BBC website here.
