15 eggs were smashed and one bird was even drowned in bleach during the vicious killing spree
A heartbroken pensioner has slammed the sick thugs who massacred his beloved budgies.
The vandals broke into 85-year-old widower Jim Shepherd's shed and began a vicious killing spree, trampling seven birds and 11 chicks to death and smashing 15 eggs.
Jim discovered the horror when he went in to check on his birds - some of which had been stamped into the floor and one was even drowned in bleach in the sink.
