    A duck shot with a crossbow has been found in Lincolnshire.
    The mallard was rescued by the RSPCA from Commercial Road in Spalding on Friday and is now recovering at East Winch Wildlife Centre in Norfolk.
    Andy Bostock, from the RSPCA, said the bird would have been in tremendous pain and said he was shocked and appalled.
    Inspectors were investigating the illegal shooting and anyone caught could face a six month prison sentence and a £20,000 fine, the RSPCA said.
