This afternoon 18 #WhiteStorks visited Malta. They were spotted in Gozo and then later on in Malta in Rabat and Mdina. At one point a member of the public witnessed a hunter shooting down three of the storks. Two were collected but when the hunter realised he was being watched he left the third one behind. The Administrative Law Enforcement (ALE) police unit was informed over 30 minutes ago, yet till now there has been no response while Rabat police officers are monitoring a smaller flock from these 18 that have rested in the limits of Żebbuġ. WE CALL ON THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO KEEP AN EYE OUT TOMORROW AND TO INFORM US AND THE POLICE IF THEY SUSPECT ANY ILLEGAL HUNTING ON THESE PROTECTED BIRDS.

Il-BirdLife Malta qalet li kaċċatur spara fuq tliet ċikonji bojod (white storks) li huma għasafar protetti.
Fuq Facebook, il-BirdLife qalet li 18-il ċikonja bajda waslet Malta. Kaċċatur intlemaħ jispara fuq tlieta minnhom. Tnejn ġabarhom hu imma waħda ħalliha warajh wara li nduna li kienu qed jarawh in-nies.
Skont il-BirdLife l-Pulizija għadha ma ħaditx azzjoni fil-konfront tal-kaċċatur. L-għaqda qalet li xi pulizija qed isegwu numru minn dawn l-għasafar li marru lejn Ħaż-Żebbuġ.
