At least 20 birds of prey nests destroyed in Friesland

Thursday 19 April 2012

Vandals have destroyed the nests of at least 20 birds of prey in Friesland so far this spring, Nos television reports.

Most of the birds affected are buzzards and goshawks, both of which are protected species in the Netherlands.

In some cases the nests have been fired on by buckshot but in several cases the actual trees were cut down.

Well we know it had nothing to do with poultry farmers, seeing as nearly everything is factory farmed inside aircraft hanger sized buildings.

I can think of three more birds of prey at risk now, one being the 'Rutterdork' that hides it's nest in old buildings in Den Haag.

How sad... Where has respect for nature gone? I guess I can't expect people to respect nature if they don't even respect each other :/
