Shot in the air

I went to Mirpur Sakro on Saturday for a photo shoot and saw some really beautiful and exotic migratory rare birds. We were trying to take pictures of this beautiful unfortunate yellow billed stork (i am not sure if that’s what it is called), when we heard a gunshot and the poor thing fell in the fields. Before we could reach it, a little boy came running and picked it. A man appeared with a rifle and knife in his hands and slit the bird’s throat immediately. Melancholy filled our hearts. I asked the man what is he going to do with this bird. He said they (him and his poor family) will eat it.
