€5k re­ward for info on bird poi­son­ing

Irish Examiner - - News -

A €5,000 re­ward has been of­fered for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the pros­e­cu­tion of those re­spon­si­ble for the poi­son­ing last year of 23 buz­zards on West Cork farm­land.

The in­ci­dent was the sin­gle largest poi­son­ing of birds of prey in Ire­land for decades. The buz­zards, a pro­tected species, were poi­soned by car­bo­fu­ran, which has been banned in Ire­land for over a decade. A spokesper­son for the Amica Pro­jects, a reg­is­tered an­i­mal wel­fare char­ity, urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact it in strict con­fi­dence on buz­zardinfor­ma­tion@gmail.com or by phone on 087 7090729.
