The buzzards, which were discovered at Fox Hole Crag, near Bransdale, last month, were x-rayed and four were found to contain pieces of shot.

North Yorkshire Police say eight people have been interviewed under caution in connection with the incident.

Officers are appealing for information. If you can help phone 101, quoting reference number 12200063953.
