Ah, If Only It Was ‘Robin Hood’s Time’….

…then we could hang the sick bastards:
The RSPCA were called and found that the deer was dead.

But the animal’s body was removed by the gang before police officers were able to attend.
So the RSPCA turned up and didn’t think to secure the evidence themselves, or wait until the police turned up?
Lancashire Constabulary’s wildlife officer Mark Thomas said: “A group of six or seven men set lurchers on the deer and the dogs killed it.

According to a witness, someone has come back on a motorbike and taken it away, with the animal being dragged along behind.

“There are a lot of deer in the area and I have no doubt they will be targeted again.”
Maybe you’ll rock up a bit quicker next time then…
Sudell councillor Roy Davies said he was appalled.

He said: “It is absolutely unbelievable. Who would want to do that to such a lovely animal?

“Deer are beautiful creatures. But nothing surprises me in Darwen these days.

“You do your best for people in the town and it just gets thrown back in your face.”

“It is disgusting. It is as if we have gone back hundreds of years to Robin Hood times.”
If only! We’d be hanging the little shits or cutting their hands off.
Darwen Town Council mayor and Sudell councillor Paul Browne said: “What are these people doing?

“They are sick thugs. I cannot understand the mentality of people.

“We have no control over society any more. What we need is more discipline.”
Or perhaps more punishment and less tolerance?
The incident came as Lancashire Police said it had launched an operation to tackle poaching in the county which had been increasing.
Well, that’s nice, but this happened right on your doorstep, not out in some far-off field, so why you think you’ve got a chance of stopping it without putting a bit more effort into investigating reports properly, I don’t know…
Pc Thomas said it was important that police dealt with the poaching problem.
Well, you’re ‘the police’, aren’t you?

Why didn’t you?

The RSPCA seem to be under the impression that they ARE the Police & that they enjoy the same powers ..

Have a look at the paragraph immediately preceding the video clip ..

Otherwise, I fully agree, totally uncalled for behaviour, which deserves to be punished ..

Why can't we ask those nice young people from the Anti-Hunt groups to take a look at stopping this? I'm sure their methods of gentle persuasion would have a beneficial effect on the open-minded owners of the lurchers.

Was this done for cruel sport or is it the start of a homegrown "bushmeat" trade?

They are often linked to organised crime and travel a lot....
That's why they are called travellers

I didn't think vermin were covered by the Act? Surely you can still kill them however you wish?

"Why can't we ask those nice young people from the Anti-Hunt groups to take a look at stopping this?"

I've often wondered why they don't dish out 'instant justice' to underclass animal abusers.

But I soon realised it's because it's class hatred that drives them, and not love of animals.,

"Was this done for cruel sport or is it the start of a homegrown "bushmeat" trade?"

Hmmm, good point. Was that why they drove away with the carcase, and not to hide evidence?

"They are often linked to organised crime and travel a lot...."

I'd have thought they'd have to be local, though, to know this was a good spot for deer?
