HOW TO REPORT RODENTICIDE ABUSE.

There has been for many years a procedure for the reporting of incidents.  This remains in place and is the first port of call for all incidents.  It is a website and hotline operated by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate of HSE (http://www.hse.gov.uk/biocides/reporting.htm).  The relevant part is called the Wildlife Incident Investigation Scheme (WIIS).  There is a general and incorrect assumption that an incident must involve a dead animal or bird.  That is not so.  Illegally placed bait is an “incident” as much as a dead owl and will be investigated by government operatives from Natural England and/or other agencies.  There is an online form (http://webcommunities.hse.gov.uk/connect.ti/concernsform/answerQuestionnaire?qid=594147) and a telephone hotline number – 0300 003 1647.

It is not the job of CRRU to police cases of abuse or misuse.  It is a matter for the appropriate government agencies.
