Scottish Gamekeepers Association Chairman, Alex Hogg MBE, said:

“The SGA strongly condemns wildlife crime in all its forms. Everyone who has supported the South of Scotland Golden Eagle project will be extremely disappointed at this news. As an organisation our support is reflected in the fact that 23 of the project's 28 donor eaglets have come from gamekeeper-managed estates. We remain proud of that involvement and will continue our support."
