Griffon vultures shot in Armenia – parts of the Caucasus and the Middle East continues to be a sink for vultures and other soaring birds

 

The indiscriminate, widespread and intense killing of vultures, eagles and other birds - now fortunately rare in Europe, continues unabated in other areas, namely in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Caucasus – unfortunately illegal hunting is still rampant in some areas, with a strong impact on some populations.

 

It was thus with no surprise – but with sadness –that VCF received recently the photographs above, of griffon vultures shot in Armenia.

 

Two deaths exposed – how many other vultures and eagles have perished this year?
