Do you know the difference between rural and wildlife crime?

Rural crimes involve incidents relating to agriculture, equine, heritage crime and livestock. It can also include environmental crime, such as illegal waste dumping and fly tipping. 

Whereas wildlife crime is any activity that goes against legislation protecting the UK's wild animals and plants, such as poaching and hare coursing.
