Police appeal after bird of prey shot in Leyburn

Police have appealed for information after a bird of prey was shot in Leyburn.

The kestrel was shot near to Love Lane at Leyburn Shawl.

The bird had to be later put down.

The incident happened on Tuesday.

Anyone with information should call North Yorkshire Police on 101, reference 12190037037.


  1. Might be an idea to check out the gun owners in the Leyburn area.

    Just a thought.

  2. 1. It is the close season for shooting
    2. love Lane is not a place where guns should be shooting; it is tightly set between domestic properties
    3. Was the victim bird a tame or a wild bird?

    I look forward to hearing more on this report
