Crossbow Attacks

We have recently rescued 2 birds and have heard of others around the country which have been shot by callous people using crossbows. This is not unheard of but is becoming more frequent. The goose was found while rescuing the oiled birds at Pymmes Brook. Fortunately we were able to save both birds as they crossbow bolts had hit nothing vital. The ones who are not so ‘lucky’ we never see.
