Appeal for information following golden eagle discovery

Press Release

Scottish Land & Estates today appealed for information following the discovery of a dead golden eagle on an estate.

The eagle was found in March and Police Scotland carried out further searches on the estate today (Tuesday).

Last month, Scottish Land & Estates appealed for information about the eagle when it was revealed that a carcass had been found.

Sarah Jane Laing, chief executive of Scottish Land & Estates, said: “Following Police Scotland’s visit to the estate today, we are again appealing for any information that may help with this investigation. Everyone should do all they can to assist in detecting and eradicating wildlife crime, and the discovery of a dead bird in suspicious circumstances must be investigated fully and the facts established urgently.  We would appeal for anyone with information to contact the police on 101.”
