Extend the investigative authority of SSPCA inspectors, providing them with greater powers to tackle wildlife crime in Scotland.

This petition had 6,184 supporters


In just one week, it is estimated that between 10 and 25% of the Black Isle red kite breeding population was illegally killed in one atrocious poisoning incident. This cannot be allowed to happen again. By directing your sadness and anger into signing this petition, you will be contributing to make real and lasting change. By signing, you agree that the laws in Scotland should be changed to give the SSPCA the powers set out in section 4.1 of the consultation document.

Furthermore, any person found guilty of committing a criminal offence against wildlife should be given a harsher, preferably custodial sentence to reflect the seriousness of the crime and to act as a deterrant to others.
