Warwickshire's rural crime team aims to step up poaching patrols after finding butchered deer

RURAL crime police in Warwickshire are planning to step up poaching patrols after finding a butchered deer.

The slaughtered animal had been dumped right under an anti poaching sign in Spernall near Studley.

PC Andy King described the deer as ‘fresh’ and believed it was the work of people rather than a fox or other predator.

He added poaching was becoming more frequent and remained under reported.




The team has already vowed to step up poaching patrols following reports of another deer shot on private land in Shuckburgh near Rugby.

Anyone with information or who has concerns around poaching should call 101 or email [email protected].


Those who suspect poaching is in progress should call 999.
