A caller to the Rumour File told Ross and Russel one cockatoo was found shot in the head and another was seen with an arrow through its chest in Wandin North.

One bird was located yesterday and a rescue operation is underway to find the second bird.

“There’s a rescue mission by Vets for Compassion and Wildlife Victoria today to hopefully get him,” the caller said.
