The RSPCA is appealing for information after a magpie and blackbird were shot and killed in the same Burton street within two weeks.

The body of the wild bird was found in a garden in Stretton on Tuesday 20th September with a bullet wound in its body.

A blackbird, which had also been shot, was found in the street earlier this month.

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018 or call Staffordshire police on 101.

It is so upsetting to think that people may take pleasure in causing such horrific injuries to defenseless animals. These are acts of cruelty and we would appeal to people’s consciences not to commit these offences.

We would also like to remind people that under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 it is illegal to take, injure or kill wild birds or interfere with their nest or eggs, unless under licence. The maximum penalty, if found guilty, is six months in prison and a £5,000 fine.
