Investigation launched after pigeons 'poisoned'

Thu, 27 Jun 2019

A joint investigation has been launched after a number of pigeons were found dead in Douglas.

The Police and the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture believe a poison used for rodents could be responsible.

Over 20 pigeons were found dead in Duke Street last week while around 40 have also been reported dead in the Birch Hill area of Onchan.

Investigating officers have made it clear that intentionally poisoning birds is an outright offence.

Anyone with information is asked to contact either DEFA or The Isle of Man Constabulary Wildlife Crime Unit on 631212.
