Poisoned Bonelli’s eagle in Cyprus
Today, in Cyprus, took place one of the most unpleasant cases of poisoning: an adult Bonelli’s eagle, an endangered species in Greece and Cyprus, was found poisoned in the Lower Tower of Tillyria.
The Research team of the Game & Fauna Service Cyprus found sparsely in the area more than 50 poisoned baits (pieces of fresh meat and insides impregnated with a hitherto-unknown toxic substance).
The incident is being investigated by the competent services, while the baits will be sent to the State Chemist Laboratory for the necessary toxicological analyzes. We hope that the preliminary investigation will identify the responsible criminal and find the exemplary punishment he deserves!
