Police have concluded that an Angus gamekeeper was within his rights to shoot a pet dog that was worrying his cattle. An investigation into the shooting of the 15-year-old collie found the gamekeeper?s actions had been ?appropriate?. A Tayside police spokesman said: ?Both the post-mortem and the vet?s statement noted that there was no unnecessary suffering and, as such, no offence was committed.?
