Drugs Eaten By Animals (1595A/22)


I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:

  1. Have any seized drugs been eaten by animals while in police storage?
  2. Have any drugs been destroyed by animals while in police storage?
  3. What is the seized volume (in g/KG) and type of drug that has been eaten/destroyed by animals in police storage?
  4. If known, what kind of animals have eaten/destroyed the drugs?

Please provide your answers with a break down for each year for each question. Please can I have it for the last two years.


I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police.  Our Facilities Department have no documented cases of any dugs being eaten/destroyed by animals. Even if it had happened, it is not something that would have been recorded as destroyed by animals.
