Attacks on birds of prey

Nearly 500 illegal attacks on birds of prey have been reported in the UK over a five-year period, the RSPB has revealed.
The charity said the attacks were recorded on raptors, including red kites, peregrine falcons and buzzards, that were shot, trapped or poisoned between 2012 and 2016.
North Yorkshire had the highest number of incidents during the period with 54.

Very sad, it makes me angry to think this is still going on!
