Birds Hunted by Youths With A Catapult -Find Them Please!

I want to say how shocked and disgusted I was to hear that youths have used a catapult to kill and maim birds and waterfowl along the WE canal here in Wednesfield North, near the Devils Elbow Bridge.
The Police are investigating and I understand that a video recording is a helpful piece of evidence. But I am more than keen to have these vile individuals traced. If anyone at all has any information. Please contact the Police or myself.
Its a disgusting act of killing at the height of the breeding season, just as the canal stands at the cusp of gaining Local Nature Reserve status. What is the reason for it. Just to leave birds dead  or maimed?
So come on folks. If you have any information whatsoever, or may know the names of the individuals. Please let the Authorities know!devils elbow mary
