Many beavers killed in Tayside, Scotland in 2019

It has been reported that large numbers of beavers (maybe up to 100) were legally killed by landowners and farmers in  Tayside, Scotland last year (The Ferret, BirdGuides), most between August and December.  Beavers were given legal protection in Scotland on May 1st 2019, and  now a licence must be obtained to control them. Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is due to publish 2019 figures in the near future.  Landowners and farmers blame beavers for crop damage and flooding. Culling beavers should always be  a last report.
