Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

A PEN­SIONER has been cau­tioned by po­lice af­ter he ad­mit­ted shoot­ing birds in his own and neigh­bour­ing gar­dens in Scar­bor­ough be­cause he dis­liked be­ing dis­turbed by their songs and calls.

North York­shire Po­lice re­ceived a report last month from res­i­dents near the man’s home in the Seamer area af­ter they found sev­eral dead birds in their gar­den and heard the sound of an air weapon be­ing fired nearby.

The man, aged in his 70s, was is­sued with a po­lice cau­tion for killing wild birds and fir­ing an air weapon beyond his premises. He also had to dis­pose of the air ri­fle as a re­quire­ment of the po­lice cau­tion.
