This statement has been made by the Moorland Association:
‘Illegally set traps – final statement
‘The MA has formally reviewed the incident on Mossdale Estate where an underkeeper admitted to setting traps illegally. The keeper is no longer employed by the estate. Mossdale has also resigned its membership of the MA.”
This may not be the last statement on this matter from this blog.
As wildlife crime investigation techniques improve then this sort of thing may happen more and more often.
