This is indeed a very sad and triste testament to scandalous behaviour by socalled "humans".

And it is found all over the world. In these parts < Atlantic Canada > we have humanoid hooligans who will purposely run down a porcupine that has strayed to the road.

It is a sad comment in a world where we should know better.

Thanx for being brave and sharing such horror with us. Jay

PS The photo is sharp and clear.

Hi Sharma,
I am not sure the size of this bird, it might be a Bulbul. The size might be important because there is a family of birds that normally impale their prey - the Shrikes. So, it is just possible that this is not the work of man.

Hi Sharma, Yes I feel very sorry. For a moment I thought it is dancing then having a closer look. I dont know when this will end. TFS Ganesh

This is not done by humans, its the butcher bird "Bay backed shriek" that has done this i suspect. This is normal way of killing its prey for shriek.
An if you had watched carefully from a distance you could have seen it feeding!
These things happen in nature :-)
