Buzzard Poisoned in Devon – Police Seek Help

It may not be a local issue, but it certainly is an important one, hence Pest Solutions UK publishing the article to promote the situation and help the Police.



Police are investigating the poisoning of two buzzards in the Chittlehampton area of North Devon.

Although the birds were found in April, subsequent forensic testing has confirmed that the cause of death was poisoning.

Officers have now issued an appeal to the public for information.

It has been reported that Dave Knight, wildlife crime officer said, “The persecution of birds of prey is one of the national wildlife crime priorities.

“Sadly, the persecution of these birds still occurs and the manner of their poisoning is indiscriminate with potential lethal consequences for companion animals.”

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Police on 101 or Crime stoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111, quoting reference CS/13/215.
