Large numbers of beavers culled on the River Tay in Scotland

There is general concern about a high level of culling of beavers on the River Tay with numbers of around 100 being mentioned in the press (e.g. The Ferret). Official numbers killed under licence in 2019 are to be published by Scottish Natural Heritage soon. As a rule, licences for lethal control would only be granted as a last resort and other forms of management should be applied first, including translocation of problem beavers to other areas (also BBC News, The Courier).
