During the overnight hours of Wednesday April 19th and the morning of April 20th, 2017 an unknown person(s) approached the bird-stalls in Harrison Park and forced the door inward exposing two golden pheasants that were lying within.

The two birds were located in a lifeless state a short distance away. It is uncertain how the pheasants met their final demise; however foul play is currently being investigated as a contributing factor in this incident.
