Illegal hunting in Malta

Illegal hunting of birds in Malta is still taking place, my words for these so called hunters are unprintable here, suffice to say that what cowards they are.
The authorities are not much better in allowing this practise to continue and take very little action in halting it.
One of Europes rarest raptors a Pallid Harrier was shot recently and survived and has been flown to Sicily to recuperate.
