Our Team specialises in the regulation of animal care and prosecutions arising from these issues. Such cases can concern wild animals and, more often, domestic animals and livestock.
Cases arise from the mistreatment of such animals, the trafficking of wild and endangered species, disease outbreaks and also prosecutions under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
We have conducted many such cases both for the Prosecution, including the CPS, the RSPCA and a wide range of local authorities, and for individuals and businesses.
We have a broad range of experience within this Team and can cater the choice of Counsel to the seriousness of the case and to the resources of the client.
