The first snaring courses have now been completed in anticipation of the forthcoming legal requirement for Scottish gamekeepers to have an accreditation for using snares. Forty keepers and employers attended the half-day courses, which form part of a series co-ordinated by BASC Scotland, the Scottish gamekeepers’A ssociation and the GWCT. Other courses will be run throughout Scotland in the coming months. For information and to book, tel 01350 723226.
