A PCSO has issued a warning to the culprits 'shooting' gulls in Dawlish Warren and the surrounding area.
PCSO Debbie Sleeman has said at least six birds have been found dead in Dawlish Warren and Starcross in as many weeks. She said: "We want this to stop right now as someone could easily get hurt. We believe someone is shooting these animals and we'd urge them not kill any more birds."
So far remains of the gulls have been found near the bakery in Dawlish Warren and at Counties Crescent, New Road and at Starcross.
Call PCSO Sleeman on 101.
