Weston Peregrine Found Shot

It's easy to be angered by a story like this and wonder what's wrong with some people? But at the same time I'm heartened by the fact that there are others who will give it everything they’ve got to restore this Peregrine Falcon's health. Non-profits like the Raptor Education Group, Inc. would still be necessary even without morons with guns blasting federally protected birds out of the sky – seems like many birds find trouble one way or another.

"A wounded and weak Peregrine Falcon has been found on the ground at the Weston Power Plant near the cooling tower. It appears the falcon is the father of the nesting family now housed on top of the Weston 3 Power Plant. He was shot in the wing."
