Wildlife Detective by Alan Stewart
Wildlife Detective is Alan Stewart's insightful and humorous account of over 40 years policing a sector of criminal activity about which much of the public and even some police officers are unaware.
Salmon, deer and game poachers, and the adventures of each side in trying to outwit the other, are the stuff of folklore. The serious legal side of this subject is also explored and the author is a leading authority on wildlife protection law.
Wildlife Detective is illustrated with 20 colour photos.
“Transvestite hillwalkers do not often feature in wildlife crime investigations but this one did help enliven what can be a tense and complicated job for a dedicated band of professionals.”
"Straightforward and methodical, as if torn from the pages of his police notebook ... there are numerous scenes of comedy stemming from criminal incompetence. There are also staggering accounts of animal cruelty."
"Alan has been a key figure in the fight against wildlife crime. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book."
