    Deer DNA used for first time in UK to prosecute poacher

    DNA testing is getting a lot cheaper and faster and is being applied to "lesser" crimes now.


    BBC News - Deer DNA used for first time in UK to prosecute poacher

    Good stuff! Shame the punishment was so lenient.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    Might be cheap to DNA but 170 fine and costs would not cover the test.

    I'm currently helping a PHD student to compile a DNA profile to be used to make forensic DNA test kits to be used by wildlife crimes departments. These will be used to match up evidence. For example, a gralloch could be traced to blood or hair in a vehicle or to a carcass. Hopefully this will help with some more prosecutions!

    now its in the news the gralloch will no doubt get carried out elsewhere.

    they would have been better off keeping that part secret.

    I suppose you'd say the same if the thieving scum stole the stereo out of your car?

    MS This is a crime but the fact remains its not that big a deal on the scale of things. What a complete waist of public money bringing this old fella to justice.

    Unbelievable. Sometimes I'm ashamed to be associated with this site.
