The Kent Rural Task Force were called to a report of illegal poaching taking place yesterday in the Swale area.
On arrival, the team were quick to stop three people in a Land Rover who had five dogs with them. After some initial checks, searches and roadside interviews the police had gathered enough evidence to report all three for offences.
