Australia's birds of prey are starting bushfires DELIBERATELY | Daily Mail Online

Kites and falcons have been observed grabbing smoldering twigs and dropping them in unburned areas to flush out prey.

At least two birds of prey - black kites and the brown falcon - swoop on burning twigs and embers and carry them (pictured) to unburnt parts of the bush where they are thought to deliberately start bushfires, according to witnesses.  They then capture large insects, frogs and animals rushing to escape

They should be fined immediately, jailed if necessary!
