Appeal after heron killed in Hartley Wintney

Press release   •   Jul 16, 2018 15:34 BST

We are appealing for information after the death of a wild bird in Hartley Wintney.

A heron was killed at around 8.15pm on Saturday 14 July at Causeway Pond on Cricket Green.

Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, it is illegal to intentionally kill, injure or take any wild bird.

We believe an airgun or BB gun was used to kill the bird.

We are particularly keen to trace a dark grey, C-reg Ford Focus that was seen in the area at the time.

If you saw anything suspicious around this time, or have any dash cam footage that may assist, please call us on 101 quoting 44180265687.

Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
