The 2004 Hunting Act

Jean Roberts made this Freedom of Information request to UK National Wildlife Crime Unit

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear UK National Wildlife Crime Unit,

Please can you tell me when your “What is Wildlife Crime” statement was last updated?

Please can you say on what grounds Fox Hunting, Stag Hunting, Deer Hunting and hunting hares with Beagles are not included as post the Hunting Act they are now surely a crime against wildlife.

Given hunts are pretty much ignoring the ban and often block badger setts with very few police forces interested in proactively monitoring hunts or even training officers please can you tell me if you have sent any generic advice to police forces about the policing of hunts?

If so, what is it please?

Was this to all police forces?

Finally, I notice poaching is a current a priority, surely illegal hunting IS basically poaching in another form. Do you plan to include prioritise illegal hunting in the future?

Yours faithfully,

Jean Roberts
