Swan family feared massacred in illegal hunt in Wrexham

14th June 2020

A FAMILY of swans is believed to have been massacred in an illegal hunt in Wrexham.

North Wales Police’s Rural Crime Team is appealing for information after ‘lampers‘ – the term for hunting with bright lights – were reported on farm land in the Rossett area on Thursday night.

The team said after lamps and dogs were seen and heard in the area, two swans and four cygnets were noted as missing on Friday on a pond at the location – with all that is left being the “remains” of one adult swan.

Anyone with information which can assist police in their enquiries can call 101 quoting reference number Y083991.
