Lincolnshire Police’s Wildlife Crime Team has issued an appeal for information after the discovery of five birds of prey and two magpies found in suspicious circumstances.
The details are a bit sketchy – no date, no specific location, no species identification, but there’s a photograph of what looks to be an assortment of avian body parts, some chunks of meat and a strange blue colouring on one of the items:
If you’re able to assist, please contact Lincs Police.

I wonder why they haven’t informed of us a date or location? Surely they may get more help if they released more information?
Perhaps they do not want any further information? It is only wildlife crime where the investigating officers regularly refuse to supply dates and location while ‘asking’ for help, expecting the public to automatically know when and where the crime took place.
Either that, or the investigating officers only ever expect the culprit(s) and accomplices to respond?
