Gamekeeper arrested over badger deaths

8 April 2008 - BBC News

A gamekeeper has been arrested following the deaths of six badgers in Dumfries and Galloway. Police and wildlife welfare officers raided a farm near Moffat after a tip-off that snares were being laid and the protected animals being killed.

As a result a 57-year-old man - who also works as a land manager - faces charges under the Protection of Badgers Act and the Wildlife Protection Act. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal at Dumfries.

The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said it had been pleased at how it had worked with Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary on the case.
