The birds of prey were found in Renfrewshire in April 2022 just a week apart and authorities are investigating after suspicions were raised.
The SSPCA said they suspect that two birds of prey have been shot dead in the space of a week.
One bird had to be put to sleep, while another was found dying with suspicious injuries which the SSPCA believe may be linked. A bird initially thought to have been stunned was found on Lochwinnoch Golf Course, Renfrewshire, on April 5 but its injuries were unsurvivable.
