Another Dead Allendale Raptor

Sorry to say that Allendale resident Kevin Henry found a dead accipiter by the Acme Shopping Center at the corner of DeMercurio Drive and Orchard Street yesterday.

I will spare you the photos.

There was no visible sign of trauma, so Deputy Marsh Warden Gaby Schmitt is taking it to The Raptor Trust in Millington, where it will be sent for a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

A big thank you to Kevin for telling me, and another thank you to Gaby and The Raptor Trust.

Please: If you find an injured or dead raptor or raven, please let me know and I will try to help.

Thank you.
