I reported several dead birds in black bags that had been dumped on my property. Nobody was interested, not the council, police, environment agency, absolutely nobody. After the maggots and smell had gone and the bones came out I had these identified by the RSPB who told me they were wild geese and advised me to ring the police and report it as a wildlife crime. I rang them to find that they didn't even have a record of my original call. I found that incredible. I do despair at the human race.
A lot of wildlife crime happens and nobody wants to know.

I notice that there is no mention of the fox hunting which is still going on. Making the excuse that it is "accidental" just won't wash, and having seen some of the footage of protestors being verbally abused and intimidated, it is clear that the perpetrators are in no way feeling guilty.

Dorset Police have a great team dealing with wildlife crime but they need our eyes and ears. Any evidence you can give that helps a prosecution is a deterrent. Public involvement is key in changing attitudes, not turning a blind eye. We mostly all have phones and can record suspicious activity from a safe distance. Let's protect our wildlife for future generations!

These are all very important issues but no mention of hunting with dogs in Dorset? Fox hunting occurs almost every day in the county during the season with multiple laws broken repeatedly. This is a common crime in Dorset and one of enormous barbarism, cruelty and arrogance on the part of the numerous perpetrators.

One of THE (so-called) roads in Sherborne used to have bats in many of the houses and we got them flying into our nearby garden. Haven't seen one for at least two years. We have been in the area for 16 years. We just loved seeing them. How people got away with ridding their property of bats I don't know but I guess nobody queried the loss of these superb creatures.

We keep on hearing of wildlife crime involving dogs ,when are the powers that be going to wake up to the constant mass murder of all sorts of wildlife caused by cats?All completely legal and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

£2500 is not really a deterrent for a developer, their profit margins or huge. Timescale is usually a bigger issue than the cost of remedial works with bats. I have heard of people hoovering the loft before a bat survey. Not sure what the answer is.
Dog poo bags are a huge issue in nature reserves. What can be done against people throwing these in the hedges? In Germany people have to pass a test to keep a dog.

If people were able to report bat sightings or possible bat colonies for a register it might help in prosecutions where barns/sheds are torn down before the authorities are aware of a colony, as was thought to have happened in a new development opposite my house a few years' ago.
