In mid-August we blogged about a shot peregrine that had been found critically injured in Gloucestershire and was later euthanised due to the extent of its injuries (see here).

There was very little information available about this crime at the time but now Gloucestershire Police are appealing for witnesses.
The shot peregrine was found near Northleach in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Anyone with information is urged to contact PC Ashley Weller on 101, quoting incident # 349/16/08.
