GAMEKEEPERS RESPONSE TO BUZZARD CASE

Responding to the sentencing of a former gamekeeper, who used an illegal gin trap to catch a buzzard, Spokesman for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association said: “This is the first we have heard about this case but, as an organisation, we are appalled. These actions have no place in modern gamekeeping and show ignorance of the legal requirements which are involved in being in the profession. They are an affront to all those who advocate high standards and take their responsibilities seriously and with care."
