Unhappy Red Kite found shot in Toddington. Bedfordshire, UK

I read all about this incident in one of the local free magazines yesterday.

A Red Kite was found near Toddington, Bedfordshire with as many as 10 shots in its body. The bird was sent of for a post-mortem examination to reveal the lead shot in its body.

All very sad!
