On 17-03-2018, two volunteers from meadow bird management were present in the Maurikse Veld near Maurik NL, to observe meadow birds. There they saw a person walking with a rifle. A bird’s tail came from under his coat. It turned out to be a tipsy buzzard. The animal was still alive. The volunteers called the police and they came directly. The police tookthe “hunter” to the police station to take his statement and confiscated the weapon. The buzzard was brought to the rescue center. Unfortunately, the left wing was shattered by the bullet, leaving no other option than euthanasia.
