Thread: Politics and Red deer

    Politics and Red deer

    Tension on Assynt | The Scottish Farmer

    Nice to see some of the usual stereotypical views being busted in this article.

    Shows how valuable Red deer are to many areas of rural Scotland.

    Yes, if the people complaining about the mass culling of the local deer had been single landowners not a "community" I don't think it would have recieved much sympathy. What was the local community to do with a sporting estate that not one of them lived on ,other than run it as a sporting estate. It is good for nothing else. When someone suggested they build "affordable homes" on the estate the locals commented that they didn't want to encourage "Glasgow schemies " into the area. Oh the pitfalls of political interference.

    Exactly. An interesting dynamic which could have a bearing on deer management legislation/systems in the future.
