Scottish Parliament reviews deer policy

A lively workshop at the 2013 Gathering looked at the perennial problem of overgrazing by Scotland’s poorly-managed deer populations. Little did we know that just weeks later the Scottish Parliament’s influential Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee, convened by Ron Gibson MP, would start an investigation into the subject. With a short deadline, we pulled out the stops and got in a submission, the Impact and Management of Deer in Scotland.
