Raptor Poisioning Investigation – No Further Police Action
Dyfed Powys Police take allegations of wildlife crime very seriously and investigates all incidents reported to us.
Following information received in 2012 and 2013, relating to the deaths of raptors in Powys, a full investigation was carried out in partnership with the RSPB, the National Wildlife Crime Unit and the Wildlife Management Team in the Welsh Government.
During the investigation a number of search warrants under the Wildlife and Countryside Act were executed and two people were arrested in connection with the incidents.
A file of evidence was subsequently submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service who advised that there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a prosecution.
