SCF Goose Petition Heard by Rural Affairs Committee

The Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) appeared before the Scottish Parliament Rural Affairs Committee to support the petition raised by the SCF calling for government action on the wild goose epidemic in crofting areas.

“It is undisputed that there is a problem with wild goose populations escalating and out of control in crofting areas” said SCF Chief Executive Patrick Krause. “But Scottish Government cut the budget in 2008 and so we are petitioning the Scottish Parliament to support our call on the government to increase resources, especially to areas such as the Uists where the greylag geese are threatening the future of crofting”.
