There may be strict regulations but when it comes to reporting anything where would you go to report it? Same goes for other animals and birds.

If it is a large cage it may b a ladder trap.  there are strict regulations in France on using call birds, which must have shelter from the sun, water and food

Magpies and Crows will always come to the aid of one in distress and get caught in the trap, guy down the road actually has one in the middle of his garden and catches quite a few, what he does with them after that is anyones guess......

I have seen crows that have been shot and hung upside down nailed to a fencepost by a crop to scare away others.....

Its usually a magpie trap ie Larson trap. Once a magpie is trapped, its call draw in other magpies into the individual partitions within the trap. Its quite humane in the catching and trapping but depends then on how the farmer disposes of them.

think you will find they are probably 'larson' traps, used to attract other pests so that they can be shot effectively
