Coordinated ‘hunt’ and subsequent shooting of a hen harrier in Cairngorms National Park

A male hen harrier was shot on moorland in the Cairngorms National Park last year, after a three-hour coordinated ‘hunt’ by men with shotguns, according to the RSPB. Two witnesses reported the incident to the police and an investigation was launched. Unfortunately, the investigation failed to find sufficient evidence to bring a prosecution. Full story¬†here.
