Hope you got a licence for that sporran mate?

The EU have just brought in a new rule to protect wild animals. The regs require anyone who has aquired any part of a range of protected species since 1994 to register it with the authorities.

Included are otters and badgers whose fur was once commonly used to make sporrans.

So watch out as the sporran police are out to get ya.

Mine is Mink mate …

Gets ready for the flack !!

Oh my lord this is gonna run and run…

I figure cats getting a mention on page 3

think it was the Scott’s not the EU

“Legislation introduced by the Scottish Executive on 24 June 2007 to protect endangered species states that kilt wearers could face prosecution if they do not have a licence for their sporran. The laws are designed to protect endangered species like badgers and otters, whose fur used to be favoured by sporran makers, and apply to animals killed after 1994. Applicants must prove that the animal was killed lawfully before they will be able to get a licence.[3]
