Shooting Hawks Now a Royal Pastime?

An AP report says that the UK’s Prince Harry and a companion were questioned by police concerning the shooting of two “hen harriers” at the royal residence at Sandrignham.

Harry and a friend, who were in the area at the time of the alleged shooting, were questioned by police but knew nothing about the incident, according to Buckingham Palace.

Norfolk Constabulary, which is investigating the hawks’ deaths, said Wednesday they questioned three people in connection with incident.

Prince Harry, his friend, and the person who reported the shooting makes three.

Hen harriers prey on grouse, which makes them unpopular with hunters, which leads to the current state of affairs where the harriers are threatened and only 160 nesting females remain.
