Prince Harry and two friends are being questioned after a pair of Britain's rarest birds were culled on the Queen's Sandringham estate.
A pair of rare hen harriers were shot in front of a warden late last night. However, in a new twist the warden revealed that Prince Harry and friend were not the culprits as they were in an adjoining field culling dodo's on the Royals rare breeds farm.
According to the warden, Harry and pals regularly enjoy "jolly japes" where they machine gun down the slow-moving creatures. Also available at the rare breeds farm are pterodactyls, famously loaned to the BBC for popular drama, Primeval. "These are mainly catapulted into the air for Harry to shoot at instead of clay pigeons," commented the warden.
Prince Harry's press agent today released the following statement," Harry does not kill rare breeds for fun, he is devoted to preserving the rare "clay pigeon" and is involved in an extensive cloning programme to reintroduce such rare birds as the dodo and pterodactyl back to the U.K"
However, Prince Harry himself seemed confused when questioned unexpectedly by members of the press, answering, "God, no, I never shot Dodi, I would never have been involved in anything like that! Oh, yes, the hen harriers, granny bagged those, bloody good piece of shooting, had 'em over a barbeque this morning, damned greasy little blighters, wouldn't recommend the "Hen Harrier Burgers" folks! Just stick to their eggs, they taste O.K."
