Police are appealing for witnesses after a swan was shot dead in Hertfordshire, probably while it was in flight.
The swan was found in the Rye Meads Nature Reserve in Stanstead Abbotts on Tuesday 30th October.
“We are urging anyone who was in the vicinity of the nature reserve on or around October 30 to think back and recall whether there was anyone acting suspiciously in the area. The person who has killed this bird has committed an offence contrary to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, which is legislation that protects wild birds like swans. "
“This poor swan has died as a result of this unnecessary attack and we are working with the police to find the person responsible for this sad incident."
