We were getting quite a lot of Tawny Frogmouths coming in to care with
suspected poisoning..but nothing showed up in an autopsy. It can cost a lot
just to have the tests. It is pretty upsetting and cruel some of the things
people will stoop to to get rid of a Magpie or Currawong because they don't
like them. It has happened here on the coast but trying to actually prove
someone is poisoning them is very hard to do.
