Hi Karen

Do you know what happened to the bird?  Has it been rescued?

Karen I live in NI as well. Have you tried TACT (Crumlin). I don't know if they have powers to do anything but they are definitely the specialists in their care and would know the laws concerning their welfare etc. If they don't have seizure powers I'm sure they would work with those that do to get this poor animal out of those conditions.

Sorry for the late reply - I only just saw the post and realised you were in NI.

My god, what is with some people thinking its ok to get a bird and keep  it in a box  :censored: Birds or prey requiur alot of special care which obviously they cant provide keeping it in a rabbit hutch which is to small for a small rabbit let alone a bird like that.

Hope this was sorted?

I also understood that you needed a license to keep birds of prey

Well done for helping - try and follow up what happens to the bird if you can. I had a run in with the local RSPCA about a sparrowhawk when I was placement there, and it's made me sceptical of how much they feel birds "matter."

You definitely do need a licence, Milly's Mum, or so the USPCA told me anyway. And I'd bet my life he doesn't have one

Thanks a million, Wibblechick and everyone. I rang the USPCA and they gave me the number for someone who deals with birds of prey. They'll be sending someone to investigate soon. It is really sad, birds were never meant to live in boxes like that  :(

Well done you! I have been thinking about that poor bird and I am sure the rescue will be concerned too.

Bit of a mish-mash but I guess if you contact one they'd be able to point you in the right direction - my guess is the bird is a Harris Hawk - cant find any recorded details of them attacking cats but Id share your concerns Heaven only knows where your neighbour bought /obtained the poor thing but you aer absolutely right that a rabbit hutch is no place for it.....  Good luck and keep us posted ....

That is a very upsetting sight.  Try the RSPB but I think it may be the RSPCA...

My next door neighbour has got a hawk and is keeping it in a rabbit hutch. I went out to talk to him about it yesterday and he said he got it "to hunt" for him, which worries me sick about my cats being outside. We live in a council estate, what on earth is it gonna hunt around here.

But it can't be right to keep this bird in the box it's in, it can't move at all, height-wise. I've taken a photo of it but it's hard to see through the chicken wire. Apart from being worried about my cats, round here is just not the place for birds like this. Who could I report this to?
