Native birds used in a protest against 1080 were bludgeoned to death:
The speaker of the house has laid a complaint with police after discovering native birds used in a 1080 protest were bludgeoned to death.
Protestors laid dead birds on the steps on parliament yesterday along with fake 1080 pellets.
Protestors claimed the birds were killed by 1080 poisoning.
However, Trevor Mallard says forensic experts say the birds were killed by blunt force trauma.
Even people who aren’t experts ought to be able to tell the difference between death by poisoning and death by blunt force.
Who did the bludgeoning and how did the protesters find the birds that had been bludgeoned?
Whatever the answers, and whoever did it, both killing birds this way and using them in a protest like this is seriously sick.
