South Wales Police are appealing for information after a fire killed 150 pigeons in Treherbert.
It's believed the pigeon sheds were targeted deliberately, and police are treating the incident as arson.
Around 150 of the 300 pigeons being kept at the site died in the fire.
We are treating this incident very seriously. Considerable damage was caused and the owners were confronted with some awful scenes. The incident has also proved very costly for them, and they have been left distraught at their loss. We believe somebody somewhere can help our investigation, and appeal for them to come forward.
