Anyone who believes an offence is taking place, or has taken place, during a hunt (including any damage on public land) should report the matter to the police as they deal with complaints of illegal hunting. Decisions on the arrest and prosecution of those taking part in illegal hunting activities are matters for the police and prosecuting authorities.
