Dove massacre in Elk

A dove-keeper in small lakes-region town of Elk, northern Poland, massacred his 100-bird flock by starving them to death over a week-long period in which he claims to have lost the key to the loft.

Spokesperson for the local police, Anna Siwek, stated that the police were informed about the ‘dramatic situation’ by a neighbor. He was, reportedly, reportedly appalled at the fact that someone could starve out their flock.

“With great concern for the birds, the neighbor forced open the loft, but it was, most unfortunately, too late,” added Siwek.

Zbigniew R., 54-years-old, the dove-fancier, explained upon arrest for neglect that he simply lost the key to the coup. For starving the birds, he faces up to a year in prison.
