Community offers reward to find yobs who killed ducks

Daily Echo: Community offers reward to find yobs who killed ducks Community offers reward to find yobs who killed ducks

A HAMPSHIRE community outraged by the sickening act of heartless yobs who catapulted ducklings to death have clubbed together to fund a reward in a bid to catch the culprits.

Appalled by the gang of yobs who used catapults to kill and maim young mallards on a nature reserve at Furzedown Farm in Hythe, scores of residents have so far raised more than £300 for a reward.

Since the story appeared in Saturday's Daily Echo, the Noble family, who own the land, have been inundated with support from friends and strangers, who are all determined to find those responsible.

Owner Deryk saw the teenagers firing lead pellets at the defenceless creatures from just yards away.

After chasing the yobs off, he rushed to call police - only to find the youths had returned in greater numbers just 45 minutes later for a second cruel assault.

Deryk's son Martin stood up to them and they fled. He said: “The support from everyone has been overwhelming and we are so grateful for that.

“Everybody is just really passionate about catching the people that have done this to the ducklings and the reward fund continually rising, with people adding their donations all the time.

“We understand that those who have information about the group that did this may feel frightened about coming forward, but it is the right thing to do. So if anyone knows anything, please let us know.”

They will probably get a caution, or even a five hour 'community' sentence. My, they must be terrified of being caught.

Fairs-fair... if they cannot be brought up to respect life and other's property then the lack of humanity that they have bestowed on a defenceless creature should be repaid - and if you go by the ancient laws of the land - at three-times the magnitude.

Is the whole society living in denial? Have you guys ever bothered to learn how the egg producers treat the birds. Just as a teaser they grind all the 'useless' young males alive to make feed mixture. When you buy your egg products at Tesco you are endorsing theses practices. If you really care for the animals go vegan and you will then truly helping the animals against the real animal abusers.

Vegan? Have you gone nuts??? Did ya dee what I did there?? lol. In all seriousness, rotten little thugs should be caught and read the riot act by the RSPCA and quite probably their parents too, most of whom would probably be mortified to find their offspring engaging in such activities!

pqp123, stop trying to change the subject. This is about ignorant, sick and sadistic little scum who take pleasure from nothing more than killing dumb animals. This is nothing to do with killing and eating the animals, this is about killing for the pleasure of killing. They need to be caught, publicly humiliated and punished before they graduate onto something bigger like other children, and if they do prove to be children themselves, their parents need to be publicly humiliated and punished as well.

I'd come back to my original question. Have you ever bothered to know how the egg factories treat the birds. Treatment which you condone everytime you buy you helmanns may. A good start would be watching the film 'Earthlings'.

That is exactly my point. I don't see much difference in what this kids did and what the KFC generation does everyday helping to promote these concentration camps aka animal farms. So I'd say just get real. We are a society living in denial. Speciesism at its best. Killing for the pleasure of killing vs killing for the pleasure of eating. Don't see much of a difference really. Now for you i'd reccommend watching youture gary yourofsky lecture. Enjoy.

I don't have a point to make against your idea, it's too ridiculous for that. Like it or not, there is a massive difference between yobs being intentionally cruel and bad practices in the production of meat, fish and eggs etc for consumption by the masses. Unfortunatley(for you and your vegan crew), not everyone shares your views or indeed misgivings or can actually see how your point is relevant to this discussion thread.
