    The sight of a dead animal could easily cause upset to some people/children, this could then be taken as a Breach of the Peace.

    Source: Common law
    Offence: When one or more persons conduct themselves in a riotous, or disorderly manner, anywhere, which alarms, annoys or disturbs the lieges (other people).
    Arrest: Common law powers of arrest.
    Notes:
    This offence can take place anywhere i.e. a house, a public street or a private office.
    Riotous: There is normally an element of noise, or 'rowdiness' or 'brawling' which is clearly causing concern to other members of the public e.g. swearing, challenging people to fight.
    Disorderly: There is a more subtle element. The behaviour doesn't have to be noisy but still of a nature that would cause concern to other people. Examples include: 'Peeping Tom' type behaviour, persistently following someone, delivering 'threatening' letters and 'streaking' or 'mooning'.
    To prove a Breach of the Peace the most important things to prove is that someone was Alarmed, Annoyed or Disturbed by the incident."


    Not laughing at all. Just think what an anti could make of seeing dead animals (in this situation as opposed to in a butchers shop)on open display. No doubt they would feel alarmed/disturbed by your disorderly conduct.

    I would wait until you were contacted by the relevant authorities before I would do anything else
    you are a registered taxidermist collecting work or even a stalker taking home the fruits of the day
    aslong as you hav the paperwork in place if needed
    I can't see a problem and make sure you hav all your freezers sorted with no surprises just incase you get a early morning visit

    So by transporting a couple of deer in the back of my pickup I am conducting myself in a RIOTOUS and / or DISORDERLY manner?

    I appreciate it 'may alarm / annoy' other people, however so may it be the case had I to walk down the High Street wearing a full mink coat and have a stuffed fox scarf around my neck.

    Given this scenario would I be reported for a BOP? Of course not because all aspects of the offence are not present therefore the offence is not complete.
