Criminal Damage of traps


Officers are appealing for information after a number of animal traps were damaged at a remote location between Rookhope and West Gate between the 29th December 2021 and the 9th January 2022.

The Philip Wayre Upland Trust located at the remote moorland location are dedicated to the conservation of protected red list birds including greenfinches, redwings and starlings and the traps are relied upon to control vermin at the location to ensure the safety of nests at the site.

If you have any information regarding the offence, please contact PC Geoff Moore on geoffrey.moore@durham.police.uk referencing CRI00378396

Kind Regards 

PCSO Chloe Gilding
