Maltese bird-killers in Egypt

This video says about itself:

This video shows the illegal killing of protected and critical endangered birds of prey, storks and waterbirds by a group of Maltese hunters at Lake Nasser, Egypt.

Several Spoonbills, White Pelicans, Egyptian Vultures, Glossy Ibisses [see also here], an Osprey, a Short-toed Eagle, a Bonelli’s Eagle, a Lanner Falcon, a Honey Buzzard, a White Egret and a White stork are being shot on this trip alone.

CABS and IAR Malta decided to publish this footage (which was filmed some years ago) to show the world the true face of these so-called hunting trips. To protect the identity of the poachers their faces and voices have been blurred.

Over 730 illegal hunting incidents were recorded by BirdLife Malta’s Spring Watch teams during the spring hunting derogation period between the 12th April and 30th April, BirdLife Malta announced today.
