Following the shooting of a buzzard in Devon, the RSPCA have put out an appeal for information. The bird had been shot in the foot with an air gun.
The buzzard was discovered at the roadside in Tedburn St Mary near Exeter on January 20.
He was taken to the RSPCA's West Hatch centre near Taunton, Somerset. The bird had to be put down because of the severity of its injuries.
The buzzard is the fourth to be shot since the beginning on January.
If you have any information in regards to the shootings, or animal cruelty then call the RSPCA's 24-hour line on 0300 123 4999.
