There’s a new piece of kit to help fight coursing and poaching – it’s a notebook.
PAW Scotland Poaching and Coursing Priority Group has released an incident book to help members of the public get the facts down and document events immediately to give a full account to police later. At the time of the incident, it is vital that as many details are taken down as possible. The handy little book is the perfect size to carry in the glove compartment or pocket, and can be used to note physical description of perpetrators, their equipment, vehicle, any dogs used and intended quarry. Copies of the free notebook can be downloaded and printed from the PAW Scotland website: www.paw.scotland.gov.uk.
