The Scottish Gamekeepers Association has been made aware of images of traps in the Grampian area.
Without knowing specifics regarding the traps or images, the Scottish Gamekeepers Association would like to restate its position that, as an organisation which has best practice and training as one of its principal aims, all traps operated must be set in accordance with the strict guidelines governing their use. Predator control devices such as approved traps and snares are important tools to protect vulnerable ground nesting birds and must be deployed in a responsible manner at all times by users.
