PART of a marksman's licence allowing him to shoot badgers in the Gloucestershire cull zone has been revoked after he lost a box of ammunition.
A member of the public found the 16 cartridges of live ammunition in a box on a footpath and handed it in to police on Thursday, October 3.
The owner was identified and spoken to by police.
A Gloucestershire Constabulary spokesman said there was no ‘specific criminal offence’ and the owner had seven days to report a loss.
Chief Superintendent Gary Thompson said "We're really grateful to those who handed in the ammunition.
"We take this very seriously because as we have said public safety has been our key objective throughout the operation."
