Snares concern on Magdalen Green

After midnight last night, a resident was walking the family dog on Magdalen Green where he discovered three rabbits caught in snares.

He released the rabbits and contacted the police about this illegal activity. Not only is snaring illegal, it's incredibly stupid to put snares out in a popular dog walking site.

I have been in touch with the police and the Leisure and Communities Department of Dundee City Council about this matter today.   Our local Police Inspector has confirmed that officers are investigating, adding :

"It was reported to us around 0130 hours this morning. I agree, it is wholly unacceptable for this to be happening."
