PARTS of Durrington have been labelled ‘poisoning hotspots’ for wild animals after the Animal Welfare Enforcement Agency received a report of meat being laced with poison.

It is thought the tampered meat, found in Chilternn Crescent and Cotswold Road, was intended for foxes – a criminal offence.

A spokesman for the Animal Welfare Enforcement Agency said: “There were reports of a similar sort earlier in the year and last year. It’s quite common.

“The main goal is to raise awareness and find someone who may have information we can use.”

Anyone with information should contact the agency on 0300 7770 999 or the police on 101.
