Wildlife crime penal­ties re­view

The Oban Times - - News -

RSPB Scot­land has wel­comed the pub­li­ca­tion of the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s Re­view of Wildlife Crime Penal­ties

RSPB Scot­land Head of In­ves­ti­ga­tions, Ian Thom­son, said: ‘Scot­land has some of the best wildlife pro­tec­tion laws in Europe, but in our opin­ion, th­ese need to be ef­fec­tively en­forced and there need to be mean­ing­ful sen­tences im­posed on those con­victed of wrong- do­ing.’

RSPB Scot­land staff rou­tinely as­sists the po­lice and other statu­tory agen­cies in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of wildlife crime in­ci­dents.
