Question ref. S6W-06068
Asked by: Colin Smyth, South Scotland, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 1 February 2022
To ask the Scottish Government what impact COVID-19 restrictions had on the numbers of deer culled in 2021-22.
Current status: Answered by Mairi McAllan on 25 February 2022
As the 2021-22 season is ongoing, NatureScot do not yet have a complete picture of the number of deer culled and so it is not possible to give an accurate assessment of the impact of Covid-19 restrictions. NatureScot will publish cull return data for 2021-22 once the season is over and returns have been received.
