Black Stork shot down in Gozo – CABS

Shortly after midday today a poacher shot down a strictly protected Black Stork in San Blas Valley, Gozo, teh Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS) said.

According to CABS the bird was recovered, still alive, after a search by their Bird Guards but it died in the arms of its rescuers moments before it was handed over to the attending Gozo police patrol. It was identified clearly as a juvenile bird that had fledged only a few months earlier before building up the strength to leave on its first migration to its winter quarters in Africa.

The search was triggered off by the report of an eyewitness ,who had directly witnessed the shooting down and reported it to the BirdLife office on Malta. BirdLife alerted the CABS team on Gozo who then organised the search together with the police.
