£5,000 reward for information on poisonings after three working dogs die

Edradynate Estate said it was looking for anyone who could provide information on the illegal poisonings – which killed three dogs and two buzzards between October 2017 and April 2018 – to help in the prosecution and conviction of the perpetrator.

 

Police Scotland is investigating.

A Police Scotland wildlife crime liaison officer said: “Once again, we also find ourselves investigating the illegal killing of raptors and this is extremely disappointing.

 

Illegal

“This poisons which have been used in both cases, are illegal poisons and have been banned from use in the UK for many years.”

 

A spokesman for Edradynate Estate added: “These are appalling incidents which have affected local estates and farms.

“We reported a number of these incidents to Police Scotland and have been working closely with them to provide help to the investigation but in spite of this, we have most recently seen the terrible death by poisoning of a sheepdog when it was most needed during the lambing period.”

 

Anyone with information that may assist our enquiries should contact Police Scotland on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
