SNH advises that Muntjac Deer should be shot on sight

Muntjac deer, a non-native species originating from China, were recently spotted in Dumfries and Galloway.  Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) responded to this sighting with a statement advising that this highly destructive animal should be shot on sight if spotted.  Scottish Land & Estates would like to remind members that the provisions set out in the Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011 require any occupier of land who becomes aware of the presence of Muntjac Deer to notify SNH without delay.  A Code of Practice on how to deal with non-native species came into force on 2nd July 2012 and can be found on the Scottish Government website.
