Reward for info about 5 shot goshawks passes £14,000

On Monday (16th January 2023), Suffolk Police found five dead juvenile Goshawks dumped at the edge of the King’s Forest, just south of Thetford. X-rays revealed all five contained shotgun pellets (see here for details).

A £5,000 reward for information leading to a conviction was launched by the RSPB, swiftly followed by another £5,000 contributed by Wild Justice (here).

The following day the bird news service Rare Bird Alert launched a crowdfunder to increase the reward (here) and so far this has raised over £4,000, meaning the total reward on offer at the moment is £14,070.

If you’d like to contribute to the reward, please visit the crowdfunder here.
