Reports of Crimes Related to Hunting 2014-2016

Question

Can you tell me how many arrests have been made and crimes committed in relation to hunting in the following years; 2016, 2015, 2014

Answer

A search has been carried out for hunting related crimes using the attached Home Office codes, please see below for the number of crimes recorded per year:

2014   6

2015   5

2016   7

In relation to the number of arrests made under the Hunting Act 2004, this information is already available to you and is therefore exempt under section 21.

I have provided a link for ease of reference:
