The Scots are Some Weird Folk

Golfers in Scotland have been finding something quite unexpected in the woods off the courses, deer mauled to death. In some cases the deer were found hanging from trees. Clubs in Bearsden, Bishopbriggs and Milngavie all reported finding deer carcasses and the SSPCA believes that deer poachers have been using lurcher type dogs to kill the deer for sport.

Tom Gatherer, from the SSPCA, said: “Using dogs to kill deer is cruel and callous and it is unthinkable in this day and age that people still consider this sport.

“The deer in these areas, although wild, are used to seeing people either out playing golf or walking their dogs so they may not have the same flight response as deer in remote areas.

“The people involved in this activity are getting easy pickings and it is deplorable.”
