Hunting on Private Land is an offence under Section 28J of the Summary Offences Act 1988 which carries a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
‘private land’ is ‘a holding and land not including or being public land’.
An ‘animal’ is any vertebrate animal except a fish.
‘Hunt’ includes search for, pursue, trail, stalk or drive out the animal in order to capture, trap, harm or kill it.
You are not guilty if you can persuade the court that you had a ‘reasonable excuse’ for your actions, including:
