STATEMENT: HEN HARRIER FIND, SOUTH WEST SCOTLAND

Commenting on the discovery of a shot Hen Harrier near Daer Reservoir, Scottish Gamekeepers Association Chairman, Alex Hogg, said: “There has been a lot of good partnership work recently regarding Hen Harriers in Scotland so this discovery is obviously a setback. We are disappointed not to have known about it, as a PAW partner, until now, given the discovery was made in April. As an organisation, we condemn wildlife crime but it would be wrong to pass judgement on who might be responsible until more is known. We would encourage our members to assist Police Scotland with their inquiries."
