Another two shot protected birds have died as a result of the sustained gunshot injuries, Birdlife Malta reports.

Both birds, a Common Kestrel and a European Nightjar, were recovered by Birdlife Malta Wednesday.

Found at Mtarfa, the Common Kestrel was found shot with major injury to one of its wings, whereas the Nightjar was recovered from Birzebbuga with damage to its wing feathers.

 

17 casualties have come out of this year’s hunting season.

Birdlife Malta took to social media to insist that this is “just the tip of the iceberg, making it one of the worst autumn hunting seasons in the past recent years.”
