I recently sold a carcass to a game dealer and attached to that was one of my BDS tags. The dealer has claimed that some of the carcass was contaminated and had to be disposed of and that they want some money back.
They have sent me a letter stating the deer carcass and a Declaration Number on the carcass. This number does not match my tag number I attached to the carcass. When I took the carcass in I filled in a second declaration form supplied by the game dealer but was not given a copy and the number if there was one was not entered on the recipe I was given.
My question is this,
1. should the dealer have a copy of the carcass tag number I attached to the deer in there records?
2. If they attached another tag to the carcass should mine have been left on the carcass as well?
The reason I'm asking is that all I have for evidence is a few photos of the carcass they took after skinning.
Thanks in advance
