Red Kites snatch sausages from barbecue


A day after model Kate Hillman told how a red kite swooped down and tried to fly off with her pet dog, police are investigating reports of the huge predators pinching sausages from a garden barbecue.


It happened in Wokingham, Berkshire, just a few miles from where 32-year-old Kate's handbag-sized Pomeranian dog Vinnie was nearly carried off by a kite.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman said "We have received a report of red kites stealing cooked food including sausages from a hot barbecue.
"We have also received a report of a red kite taking a fully-grown male Mallard duck off the water.
"Anyone with confirmed reports of red kites killing young livestock or domestic pets should call police on 101."
Experts are urging people not to feed the kites, which are becoming a common sight in the skies around Reading, Maidenhead and Henley-on-Thames.
