Police in the Western Isles are investigating the shooting of two deer after being called in by an estate.
The stags were shot with under-calibre rifles and were found in the Baleloch area of North Uist.
The area straddles land owned by North Uist Estate, run by Earl Granville’s family trust, and the Scottish Government.
A police spokesman said it was treating the matter as a wildlife crime and was investigating.
Anyone with knowledge of the incident is urged to contact police on 101.
