    Perigrine Falcons shot

    Hi All,

    This is in the local rag today
    http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk...st_of_Bowland/

    Local wildlife liason officer states 'suspected to have been shot' while someone from 'Raptor Politics' states ' they had been blasted to death with a rifle' this is whilst the chicks were sat in a line on a ledge............

    Just something else to give rifle holders a bad name.

    Regards

    Michelle

    Obviously either the hack or the "spokesman" is a bit of a newbie to this sensationalist reporting lark. Everybody knows that you "blast" things to death with a shotgun. Rifle armed miscreants"snipe" at things. Come on; get it right!

    where shot, then may be shot, then preliminary results on site say shot........

    how is it when these stories come up they seldom ever report what happened to the bird at a later date.
    huge headlines then nothing, no proof no follow up no post-mortem results, oh bar one in a hundred when it actually was shot........
    Michelle can you follow up on that story in a week or so and email the editor asking for an update from a concerned bird watcher..
    bet you hear nothing..

    These people should be hauled out from behind the press machines & given an airing to show their complete inadequate grasp of reality.
