Format: Paperback
Alan Stewart is probably the most experienced and knowledgeable police wildlife officer in Scotland, and quite possibly the UK. His first book 'Wildlife Detective' was more biographical, detailing his own experiences of cases involving wildlife crime through his career. This book differs in that it features crimes from all over the UK. Rather than recounting his own experiences he is relaying those of many other investigators, and the author uses his knowledge of the subject and his story telling abilities to bring the details of cases alive.

The book is split into sections for different counties or regions of the UK, within which are a contained a range of varied cases involving wildlife crime. There is a surprising range of crimes covered, from poaching to egg stealing, bulb theft to environmental damage, raptor persecution to dolphin 'bothering', you name it, and some police officer somewhere in these islands has had to deal with it. There is even the odd story here and there that turns out not to be about a crime but is all in a days work for a WCO, such as the kangaroo reported leaping around Cardiff that turned out to be....well you'll just have to read it.
This is an interesting insight into the breadth of crimes committed against wildlife, and perhaps more importantly the real difficulties that the police have in investigating these crimes. However, it appears that the difficulty in investigating them is dwarfed by the difficulty in prosecuting them and many of the culprits ultimately go free on technicalities, or if found guilty are 'punished' with minimal fines. All in all it seems that the work of the wildlife crime officer, while sometimes exciting may often be a slightly thankless task.

Any one interested in wildlife should read this book, it shows the other side, of the world of the wild.
It shows a side of humans that is definitly not humane.
I would recomend this book to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars wildlife crime 10 April 2015
By G.I.Forbes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a follow up to the 2008 volume entitled "Wildlife Detective"
The author discusses wildlife crime,its investigation and its prosecution in various areas of the United Kingdom and Ireland and it is surprising how the various elements are treated.Scotland is now leading the way following the anger that erupted after the poisoning of a golden eagle in 2006 with coordinated legal action and investigation.
It is hoped this book will create greater interest in these problems and wake up the sleeping magistrates and sheriffs.
