Hunters face punishment for fatally injuring protected bird

Have your say

Police are appealing for information to catch cruel hunters who trapped and killed a buzzard in the Peak District.

Walkers found the bird of prey caught in a metal spring trap on moorland near Winscar Reservoir, in the northern Peaks near Penistone.

The buzzard was taken to a local veterinary practice, but its injuries were so serious it had to be put down.
