August 11th 2017: Please find below an e-mail I sent to our supporters a few minutes ago after learning that the Moffat Sheep Races have been cancelled. Animal Concern Advice Line (ACAL) objected to these races as they clearly breach the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006. Our successful campaign is outlined in the e-mail below. Please feel free to use anything from that e-mail or from my statement below. I will be going out of the office shortly and can be contacted on mobile 07721605521.
August 9th 2017: After a month of getting no-where with Dumfries and Galloway Council and the Scottish SPCA we have called on the Scottish Cabinet Minister with responsibility for animal welfare and asked her to intervene to stop the Moffat Sheep Races going ahead this coming Sunday. Read our plea to Roseanna Cunningham
