Crimes involving wild animals, including the trade in animal parts like gallbladder of bears and paws, and poaching of protected and endangered species have increased in the recent past. There is also increasing interest in establishing the culpabilities for the death of wild animals as a result of pollution or poisons. These developments have resulted in greater need for evidence obtained by the examination of dead wildlife that will be acceptable in the court of law.

The book is written in 2 parts. In Part I the necropsy procedures in some wild animals along with the procedure for collection and preservation of specimens for diagnostic purposes are given. These procedures are common both to the disease investigation as well as forensic necropsies in wild animals except that the forensic necropsies need more careful examination and collection and preservation of material for diagnostic purposes. In the second part information on the list of various wildlife crimes, the role of each member of wildlife crime team investigation in general and the role of pathologist in particular, (the forensic veterinary pathology)and the salient features of methodology of crime investigation is given. Information on the mistakes and omissions in forensic necropsy, negative necropsy, common errors committed by pathologist while performing forensic necropsy, postmortem appearances of common pathological conditions and estimation of age of some of the domestic animals and their foetuses is given for guidance. Various types of wounds, and the types of firearms and their terminology are also given for easy understanding about the wounds and fire arms.

Hope this book will be of use to all those interested in wildlife preservation and especially to veterinary pathologists who are involved in conducting necropsies pertaining to wildlife crimes, wildlife personnel dealing with the law enforcement, students and teachers in veterinary colleges as well as the students of wildlife school and zoo personnel.
