Fife Partnership to Tackle Crimes Against Animals

A new partnership has been set up to try to prevent crimes against animals in Fife in Scotland.

Formed between the police and landowners in Fife, the Fife Partnership Against Wildlife Crime has been set up to try to reduce the wildlife criminal offences of, for example, badger baiting, deer poaching and hare coursing. This comes as the numbers of reported animal crimes has increased as much as ten times between 2009 and 2010.

Further concerns exist because of the possession of firearms, such as on the public roads, which may be used for the purpose of hunting animals. Police are now treating such crimes as more of a priority than they would have done previously.

If you have been accused of crimes against animals, it is important to get specialist criminal law advice early. McSporrans have expert criminal solicitors based in Edinburgh who can advise on all aspects of criminal procedure and law and provide representation in the courts of Edinburgh and Fife. Contact us today on 0131 225 8813 for free initial advice.
