Today on my door knocking rounds, I came upon an awful sight. A poor robin had been
shot through the head with what turns out to have been a blow dart. The crows were
circling the poor thing, and without thinking, I scooped him up and took the dart out
of it's head. I wound up taking him to the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley. A report
will be made, and because it is a migratory bird, the Dept. of Fish and Game
will also get involved along with the police.
Whoever the SOB is who did this is most likely not aware that this is a felony.
For those of you who live in our area, keep your eyes out for anything that looks
like this(photo below, along with the victim), as well as anyone you think might be responsible and let's get this jerk!
From birds, they will turn to other animals to torture.
