Bavaria: 185 cases of raptor persecution
In Bavaria, a total of 185 cases of illegal raptor persecution with more than 450 victims have been registered in the state in the last 10 years. Only last Friday, CABS members found a dead buzzard (suspected poisoned) near Straubing and reported it to the police. In addition, there are animal and trophy traders who illegally market protected animals - in the last few months alone, seven Bavarian companies have been reported by CABS, and over 150 animals have been seized.
