Wildlife Crime !

PIGEON UPDATE! The ID number on the pigeon is NE3856SU14.

In the space of 18 hours I was contacted by two Nairn residents reporting 2 injured birds. One of these was a Herring gull found in Gordon street, and the other was a homing Pigeon found in Douglas street. Both had been shot ! The Police have been informed as well as the Scottish SPCA who took the gull away. 

The pigeon I took to the Vet to see if it could be saved, unfortunately the injuries were too severe and it had to be put to sleep. Perhaps the owner might recognise the rings on the pigeon, a green one on the right leg and a yellow one on the left.
It seems we have a shooter in the town, now hunted by both the Police and the SPCA.
These birds are innocent creatures and have as much right to be on the Planet as the rest of us, the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust will not tolerate the senseless killing of birds and will assist the Police and SPCA whenever we can.YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !
