Police say someone shot and killed a federally-protected peregrine falcon that was found outside a home in Salem, New Hampshire.

The homeowner found the dead falcon in his front yard Saturday afternoon. Police say they think the bird was perched in a tree when it was shot, likely by a .22 caliber round. They were not able to recover the bullet.  They posted photos of the dead bird on the Salem Police Facebook page Wednesday.
