STATEMENT: SENTENCING OF BORDERS GAMEKEEPER


The Scottish Gamekeepers Association has issued the following media statement after a Borders gamekeeper, Alan Wilson, was sentenced today (19th August) for wildlife offences.

A Spokesman for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association said: “The actions, in this case, are a gross breach of our organisation’s wildlife crime policy. They reflect negatively on the reputation of the entire profession, are unacceptable and entirely out of step with what we expect of our members’ conduct. We will be terminating the individual’s membership of the SGA with immediate effect.”
