A Police Service spokesperson said: “The Police Service takes all concerns regarding wildlife crime seriously, and will investigate accordingly.

“Deer are protected by law within the Wildlife (Northern Ireland) Order 1985. PSNI’s ‘Operation Wild Deer’ initiative aims to raise awareness of deer poaching, and we work in conjunction with partner agencies to help address these issues.

“It is also worth noting on occasions when officers are considering deer poaching, firearms offences may also be established. Shooting on unfamiliar land is not only dangerous, but may also constitute a criminal offence and will be investigated as such.”

Anyone who has concerns about wildlife crime should contact Police on 101, or report anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
