Deer: Law and Liabilities 2nd edition by Charlie Parkes and John Thornley
The completely revised and updated edition deals with the law and liabilities relating to deer in the UK. In addition, one chapter deals with Europe in terms of visitors to and from the continent.
Deer have value as a conservation resource and as a traditional sporting quarry. However, they have increased in numbers, and as a consequence, the need for deer management has greatly increased. Management issues increasingly focus on the legal implications of the welfare of deer, public safety and maintaining a balance between economic activities and environmental conservation. This is all covered in 'Deer: Law and Liabilities'.
