Wildlife Crime - East Lothian


On Sunday 1st December a multi - agency day of action was carried out in East Lothian to target ongoing issues with hare coursing and other associated wildlife crime.

During the course of day, numerous officers were deployed to areas across Dunbar, North Berwick and Haddington to carry out patrols.

Although no calls were received from the public, officers did disturb 4 persons near to Knowes Farm, Tyninghame who were suspected to be involved in coursing activities. Due to persons having seen officers approaching, they managed to leave the area within a dark coloured 4x4 vehicle and efforts to locate this were unsuccessful.

Anyone who may have information relating to this vehicle should contact police quoting incident reference 1197 of 01/12/2019. Further days of action are planned over the coming months.

Officers would like to remind members of the public to report any suspicious activity which may relate to Wildlife Crime by contacting Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
