Sporting Gun - - SNAPSHOTS -

Scot­tish Nat­u­ral Her­itage (SNH) has granted Perthshire Strath­braan Com­mu­nity Col­lab­o­ra­tion for Waders a re­search li­cence to con­trol bur­geon­ing raven pop­u­la­tions.

The li­cence will ini­tially per­mit the cull of up to 69 ravens and will be adapted each year. SNH has at­tached con­di­tions to en­sure the li­cence will pose no threat to raven pop­u­la­tions, which have risen by 134 per cent in the UK in only two decades.
