The bird was found with broken legs on January 28th in the region of Veliko Tarnovo. Unfortunately, the patient died shortly after its arrival at the Rescue Center. Our fears that this beautiful bird has fallen victim to poachers came true after the X-ray examination. The ball-shots that injured the bird’s two legs are clearly visible on the X-ray.
For those, who are not aware, we would like to add that according to the Bulgarian Biological Diversity Act the Gray Heron (Ardea cinerea) is a protected species.
