Police in York are appealing for information after a Barn Owl was killed in the city.

Someone broke into a cage where the owl was kept at a house on Langholme Drive on the evening of Wednesday, 22nd October.

They also released two other birds of prey from their cages.

This is a shocking act of cruelty against a defenceless bird.

If you have any information about the person responsible for this act of cruelty, I urge you to come forward and contact the police straight away.
