I was reading the WANE Act earlier and was reminded that:
SNH have a remit to "conserve" Scotland's "native" deer.
However I'm not clear on what SNH's remit requires them to do about non-native deer. Which got me thinking... for instance:
Among Scotland's Roe population, especially in the central belt, which ones are from "native" lines and which one's are from re-introduced lines?
Do the "non native" ones require to be exterminated, along with Sika and their hybrids .... and Norman Fallow! ... Or what?
What is the actual position in respect of these "non-native" deer... re: SNH's remit and policies? Does anyone here know?
