A MAN has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal following the illegal death of a hen harrier in Aberdeenshire last year.

The 58 year old man from Aberdeenshire is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court at a later date.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said today: “A 58-year-old man from Aberdeenshire has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal in relation to wildlife crime following the death of a bird of prey in the Huntly area in June 2013 and is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court at a later date.”
