    Cumbria police - anti hunting?

    It could be me but is Cumbria police pretty much anti countryside / shooting / hunting?

    I have been on the website below and the language just seems to be against folks hunting regardless if there activites are legal or illegal.

    You should try having a listen to what the Scottish wildlife crime unit think of hunting

    Andrew Mavin rates hunters as "barbaric" and with a mentality "beyond comprehension" This from a man who knows nothing off hunting and was even surprised when he was transferred to his current position

    As far as the firearms guys go I have heard good things.

    Lets not mix up our lawful activities with the information in the wildlife crimes section.

    I'm sure all of us would agree that many of these crimes need stamping out and perpetrators should be harshly dealt with.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Agredd, but the language just seems to suggest that we should always be treated as suspects.
    Check this document out relating specifically to the sale of venison.

    This would be the RSPB Tactical Wing of Cumbria Police, I assume?

    I cannot recall such politicised, partisan drivel on a police website.

    Yes, and lets not distance ourselves too far from fellow hunters.

    Most of their wildlife crime section is filled with mis-information. Scarey that they are the police and should know whats right and whats wrong.

    Personally I have found Cumbria police firearms department very helpful and flexible. Not so, the traffic police!
