Look at the size of this bad boy :icon_eek:   Found by my mate near Stirling knocked down.  im guessing its a big dog otter.  Dont think you taxidermy boys touch them these days as too much hassle with regulations ?  Shame as it would have looked lovely skinned in front of my fire  :D

:icon_eek:  Really, Rob?! F**k!!! I thought, as long as it's obviously a road casualty and was signed over as such, all was okay?

 

 So; How about badgers and pine martens, over there? As I've mentioned privately, I'm not even allowed to pick up a road kill piney. I never knew that applied with you too.

Hi pete badgers and martins are ok if there road kill and you can prove where they have come from or by where they came from but otters no no you need a special licence and there only given if the animal is to be used in a museum or for educational ie schools colleges uni. It's the same for the scotish wild cat those two species you can't even have in your possession even if you have acquired them legally stupid I know and a terrible waist cheer.

Yes mate it's been lobbed in the woods behind his house. It's a crying shame it really is. It's the same with some birds isn't it Rob, don't you need an A10 for a tawny owl which are ten a penny.......but zilch for a dartford warbler or Corn Bunting ??

That's right mate any bird of pray will need a A10 but nothing for some of our rare little birds it doesn't make any sense
But you did the right thing it's just not worth it cheers.
