Bennachie Forum > Poachers

There is a gang of poachers operating on Bennachie. This morning I found evidence of 2 deer which had been shot during the night at the Back o' Bennachie. Previously I've seen them driving along the logging road using a high powered spotlight to find the deer late at night. The only way to get a vehicle into this area is via the locked gate at the Back o' Bennachie car park. Maybe it's time for the Forestry Commission to change the padlock.

The Bailies of Bennachie have contacted Forestry Commission Scotland. This was not poachers but Forestry Commission staff i.e. Wildlife Rangers, they had informed the police. If you do ever see suspicious activity in the woods contact the police.
