Woman charged following fox hunt in Scottish Borders
The 42-year-old has been charged for allegedly deliberately hunting a fox with a dog.
A woman has been charged following a fox hunt in the Scottish Borders.
The 42-year-old will be reported to the procurator fiscal for allegedly deliberately hunting a fox with a dog.
It is legal to flush foxes out with hounds and shoot them but illegal to allow dogs to kill foxes.
The woman was charged after concerns were raised about a hunt on October 24 last year.
Police Scotland wildlife crime officer Andy Loughlin said: "We take all reports of wildlife offences very seriously and criminality against our natural environment in Scotland will not be tolerated.
"I would encourage any members of the public with any concerns to contact police."
