Case against gamekeeper George Mutch: part 2

scales of justiceCriminal proceedings against Scottish gamekeeper George Mutch continued today at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

Mutch, from Kildrummy Estate in Aberdeenshire, is understood to have been charged with six alleged offences under Sections 1 and 5 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act.

Section 1 of the Act is concerned with the protection of wild birds, their nests and eggs.

Section 5 of the Act is concerned with the prohibition of certain methods of killing and taking wild birds.

This case opened last month (see here) for a pleading diet, but was continued without plea until today’s hearing. The case was adjourned again today, still without plea, until 30th October.

As we wrote last time, this case is of particular interest on several levels and is expected to attract a great deal of interest. Watch this space…
