Two children have been identified and a charge has been made after a peacock was allegedly tortured and killed at a Fife park.
On Monday, police received a report of animal cruelty after a peacock, known as Malcolm, was found dead at Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline.
A second peacock was also injured in the incident.
Police have now confirmed that two boys, aged 13 and 11 have been identified in relation to the incident.
The 13-year-old has been charged in relation to the incident, and both have been reported to the Youth Justice System.
A GoFundMe page which was set up to repair the park’s aviary following the incident raised thousands in a matter of hours.
Money raised will go towards vet fees and repairing the aviary and remains open.
