Parliamentary Motion: No Place for Wildlife Crime

13 January 2013

James Dornan MSP (SNP, Glasgow Cathcart) has lodged a parliamentary motion entitled: No Place for Wildlife Crime. The motion reads: That the parliament notes the poisoning of the golden eagle named Fearnan and believes that the killing of birds of prey has no place in modern Scotland; believes that the golden eagle population is of national interest, as demonstrated by a recent poll in which the species was voted the country’s favourite animal; supports efforts by Police Scotland to bring wildlife criminals to justice, and commends the Scottish Government’s commitment to end raptor persecution.
