Alleged poison offence added to case against Scottish gamekeeper

A couple of weeks ago we blogged about the prosecution of Scottish gamekeeper Alan Wilson who is charged with allegedly committing 12 wildlife crimes at Longformacus in the Scottish Borders between March 2016 and May 2017 (see here).

Mr Wilson, 60, has pleaded not guilty and a trial is due to start at Jedburgh Sheriff Court in June 2019.

Further to the 12 alleged wildlife crimes, which are reported to include the shooting of two goshawks, four buzzards, a peregrine falcon, three badgers and an otter, we now understand that a further charge includes the alleged possession of the banned pesticide Carbofuran.

Please note: we will not be accepting comments on this news item until legal proceedings have concluded. Thanks.
