Police appeal as exotic birds dumped in Derbyshire

Derbyshire

Date of alert:

Saturday, 4 March 2023

Crime Ref:

Force:

Derbyshire Constabulary

Abandoned exotic birds have been found by police officers in Derbyshire.

A Java Sparrow, which is native to Bali and a young Diamond Dove, native to Australia, have been found in the Clowne area.

Officers from Derbyshire Rural Crime Team believe the birds have been dumped in the area as the young dove could not fly so would not be able to escape from an aviary.

Rural Crime Team urged anyone aware of someone releasing non-native birds around Clowne to contact the team and ask for PC 2581.
