A new notebook to help the public record suspected poaching or coursing incidents has been produced. PAW Scotland Poaching and Coursing Priority Group released the notebook to allow people to record as much accurate and detailed information as possible to pass on to the police. The book is designed to fit in a glovebox or pocket, and guides the user on the type of information that should be recorded.
Copies of the free notebook will be available at the BASC stand at the Scone Game Fair 2015 on July 3rd, 4th and 5th.
Copies of the notebook can also be downloaded and printed from the PAW Scotland website www.PAW.Scotland.gov.uk
To report a wildlife crime incident, contact Police Scotland on 101, or phone 999 in an emergency.
The contributing organisations to the project are The British Deer Society, Scottish Land and Estates and BASC. Approval and support has been granted by Police Scotland, the PAW Scotland Executive and the Scottish Government.
