More poisoned baits found on Leadhills Estate, South Lanarkshire

10 June 2013

The Scottish Raptor Study Group is disgusted to learn that more poisoned baits have been discovered on the Leadhills Estate in South Lanarkshire. This estate has been at the centre of poisoning and other raptor persecution allegations for over a decade; the latest discovery was made on 8th March by a member of the public. Government scientists have confirmed the baits contained the banned poison Carbofuran. Once again this incident was not publicised by the police or PAW Scotland.
