Scottish Trophy Hunters thought responsible for the deaths of two peregrine falcons found dead in 2010

[singlepic id=237  w=214 h= 192  float=left] Police in Scotland have now revealed they are hunting criminals who used a banned industrial grade poison to kill two peregrine falcons in May 2010. Both peregrines were found dead at a quarry in the West Lothian town of Kirknewton after being poisoned with the lethal pesticide aldicarb. Wildlife investigators believe the killings were clearly deliberate and one of the peregrine’s heads had been severed to be kept as a “trophy”.
