Great Blue Herons Found Shot In Huntersville
HUNTERSVILLE,NC--Neighbors are searching for answers after two Great Blue Herons were found shot.
Carolina Waterfowl Rescue picked up the injured birds and reported both Herons were in such bad shape they had to be euthanized.
Last April neighbors say someone shot another Blue Heron in the same location which started the concern.
Great Blue Herons are federally protected by the Migratory Treaty Act and people responsible for harming the birds face fines up to $200,000 and could spend up to a year in jail.
