According to the police, the slow growth of crops means that there is less cover, leading to an increase in poaching. Inspector John Lawson, who is leading the operation, said: “There are people in some of our communities who think it is acceptable to go out into rural areas and allow their dogs to pursue and kill wild animals.”
