Pheasant in bin mystery

First published in Letters

I THOUGHT I would share with readers what I happened upon trudging home through the snow, as dusk was falling... a dead pheasant.

It was placed in a plastic bag on top of a litter bin in Ruskin Avenue, Rogerstone. It was huge, and first of all I thought it was a discarded artificial feather decoration as a long feather was sticking out of the bag, but on lifting the cover I saw this magnificent bird, really beautiful plumage... but dead. How did it get there? I wondered. Perhaps someone knows how it got there?

I would imagine it was spread over the road like strawberry jam and then someone decided to put it in a bag and dispose of it.

Beautiful plumage. A bit like the Norwegian blue Parrot.
