SGA STATEMENT: COURT CASE, STRANRAER

SGA Statement: Gamekeeper Peter Finley Bell fined £4450 for poisoning a buzzard and possessing illegal pesticides. A Spokesman for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association (SGA) said: “The SGA and its 5300 members condemn illegal poisoning. The SGA works with PAW partners, and will continue to do so, to eradicate this activity. “The SGA advocates those facing problems with predation of livestock by protected predators should only look to the legal routes and options open to them rather than taking the law into their own hands.”
