Many of our weekend visitors and followers of social media will be aware of recent events involving the culling of Canada Geese on land adjacent to the Reserve.
The Trust would like to make its position clear on these concerning events.
“The shooter is not on our land and is not allowed on it – he is nothing to do with Rodley Nature Reserve and is shooting on the farmer’s land adjacent to the Reserve which we sadly have no control over.
If he has been on our land and it can be proved we would involve the police re trespass – we clearly would not allow such activity or anything associated with it on the Reserve and we have no evidence that this has happened. If anyone has such evidence we would like to know and we would certainly follow it up.
We of course hate animal cruelty of any kind and we are appalled by the way this man is carrying on. We would take any necessary action if we had clear evidence he was breaking the law”
