S5W-21781: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 22 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what monitoring of beaver control is currently in place, and how many beavers are known to have been killed in (a) 2018 and (b) 2019.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 5 March 2019

There is currently no monitoring of beaver control in place.

The Scottish Government does not hold data on how many beavers were killed during 2018 and 2019 as land managers were not obliged to record this information.
