Swan Killer On The Loose
Unfortunately we have more news of senseless bird cruelty doing the rounds today. 29 swans have been murdered in Somerset in just a month. Wildlife workers yesterday found ten birds dead in Wedmore, Somerset, just weeks after finding eight swans dead in Blackford and more carcasses at Godney. Most of the birds had been killed by a shot to the head with air rifles. A £10,500 reward has now been offered to help catch the swan killer. The Secret World wildlife centre in Somerset is offering the reward, and asking for anybody with any information to ring them on 01278 783250. Police have stepped up patrols in the area and have said that the person responsible, if found, will be prosecuted.
