A further case of poaching in Italy

One of the Short-toed Snake Eagles that have been tracked by the University of Alicante together with the Natural Park of Gallipoli Cognato (Southern Italy) has been killed at the Strait of Messina. After 15 months of life the young eagle has been shot in Northern Sicily close to Messina town. This is a further signal of alarm of a situation that could frustrate the protectionist effort made in the breeding areas of these endangered species.
