Inverness police search for deer poaching suspects

Police have appealed for information after reports of two people poaching deer in woodland near Inverness.

The incident happened in the Black Wood of Leys and Tomfat Wood area south of the city overnight on Saturday or Sunday.

Officers believe that the suspects were disturbed before they could recover the deer carcass.

Wildlife crime officer Daniel Sutherland urged anyone who saw anything suspicious to contact police.

He added: "We will continue to work with land owners, members of the public and partners to identify and disrupt poaching activity."
