Illegal bird of prey trap discovered near Lübbecke.


Following a report from CABS head office, police officers shut down a trapping facility targeting protected hawks and other birds of prey in the district of Stemwede (Minden-Lübbecke district, North Rhine-Westphalia) on Wednesday. The ladder trap, which is around five cubic metres in size, resembles an aviary and works on the same principle as a fish trap. A dead chicken and offal were used as bait to lure birds into the trap. Hunting interests are suspected as the motive, as there is a raised hide, a freshly filled pheasant feeder and two active fox traps in the immediate vicinity.
