Man spotted mutilating birds with vehicle

Members of the public who visited the beach area between the parking area and Donkey Bay, south of Walvis Bay, spotted a man over the weekend  with a Tata-pick up vehicle, deliberately running over and killing marine birds.

Pictures were taken of these three terns, two Common Terns and one Crested Tern, that fell victim to this act of human cruelty. One of the Common Terns had a ring around one of its legs, and was ringed in Estonia in the Black Sea region, making the loss of such a bird even more devastating for conservation- and scientific  purposes.
