Murder at the Lake
Last Tuesday (26 November) late in the afternoon (sometime between 17.45 and 18.30), one of the original ducks to occupy the lake died from horrific injuries received at the hands of two Spanish males (one tall and slim, the other shorter and stockier). The individuals suspected of carrying out this attack had been seen on a number of previous occasions demonstrating their prowess as hunters by throwing stones at the ducks (their bravery knows no bounds)?
This particular day they progressed their bravery to the next level by dropping a large boulder onto the duck, causing it to suffer a shattered leg and having its back split open. One can only imagine the pain this duck must have suffered before succumbing to its injuries.
The two suspects then reinforced their bravery by fleeing in their car when they saw a lady walking her dog heading towards them. As more people arrived at the scene, their car (thought to be a blue 5 door hatchback – possibly a Nissan Almera) drove past on the road above the lake at least twice before the murderous thugs decided that killing a duck was one thing, having to deal with people was beyond their ability.
This incident has been reported to the Town Hall and the Local Police. Whether anything happens as a result of this report remains to be seen.
All we can ask at this time is for people to be aware of what has happened, and be observant if you happen to be in the vicinity of the lake. If you see anything suspicious or are concerned then please report it to the Local Police as soon as possible.
