Walker shocked after seeing farmer hang dead crows on pole
A walker in canton Solothurn says he was shocked after a farmer used dead crows as a scarecrow.
The man who walks his dog along the same path everyday says he saw the farmer trying to scare the birds away as they were eating the freshly sown seeds.
The next day three dead birds were hanging on a pole.
The man says it reminded him of the middle ages.
He called the police, but the birds remained in place.
The law says dead animals should be disposed of safely. The police refused to comment on the case.
