    Update on the poacher

    Hi guys, Update!. poacher

    Hi Guys, My local paper "The Galloway News" Has in today’s edition a court report on a man from Newcastle named Brian Weddell of Ninth Row, aged 51 who has plead guilty of recklessly firing a rifle near Dalry, he plead guilty by letter after he appeared on 12 June this year.
    He discharged the rifle near Corriedoo from the A702 road from Dalry to Edinburgh, shooting and killing a roe deer, when there was a man stalking nearby he also admitted shooting the deer without permission and failing to comply with the terms of his firearms licence.
    He also admitted driving without "L" plates and without supervision or insurance.
    Sentencing was deferred to October 28 for Wendell to make a personal appearance.

    I was wondering if this is the case that was debated in June?

    Dry Powder.

    The Above was the original post, sentance has been postponed three times, latest is 10th March 2011!



    Mr Wedell has had his case Ajourned until March the 10 at Kirkcudbright Sherrif Court.

    The wheels of justice grind extremely slowly.

    possibly a custodial sentence if they ask for him to appear

    Firearm certificate revoked perminantly, guns taken away and sold, money given to childrens charity.
    Car crushed and banned from driving for 5 years.
    2 years custodial scentence.
    Compensation to the other landowner and stalker for poaching on their land.

    Thats what he would get from me if I was the local beak and it was allowed.

    But in reality he will be told he is a very naughty boy and given community service

    Tell me the sentence is not really deferred until October, and that was a typo.

    A few weeks ago there was a case here when 3 Carlisle lurcher men were captured with a hare and a few rabbits and were fined a total of £750.
    A gamekeeper here last night said poaching with dogs had ceased !
