151.Investigation launched after another golden eagle vanishes near Inverness. UK/Scotland, August 2016

“The raptor is the eight bird being monitored by the RSPB to disappear in the area during the last five years, and inspectors suspect it was shot before its transmitter was destroyed." RSPB Scotland’s Head of Investigations, Ian Thomson, said: "These eight birds have all disappeared in an area where driven grouse moor management dominates the landscape, and where there have been many previous cases of illegal killing of protected raptors, including the poisoning of a golden eagle and a white-tailed eagle as recently as 2010.”
