Officers are asking people who see these bird traps to contact them after these pictured were found near Dursley.
During the weekend of the 16 and 17 of January in a rural area just outside Dursley, these bird lime sticky-sticks with bird seed on them and some sticky tapes were found.
People use these to catch small wild birds such as finches and these can then illegally be sold on to the pet trade.
We're asking members of the public to please be vigilant when walking out in rural areas. If you see any bird traps like these pictured, please report them to police quoting incident 231 of 17 January.
