14-year-old boy accused of attacking animal in Dean Park in Kilmarnock
A teenager has been accused of “attacking” an animal in Dean Park in Kilmarnock, as cops quelled a wave of anti-social behavior.
The 14-year-old boy has been charged with an alleged offense under the Scottish Animal Health and Welfare Act, following an undisclosed incident in Ayrshire National Park.
It follows a crackdown on anti-social behavior in the East Ayrshire region, with cops facing an upsurge in gatherings of young people animated by alcohol.
Patrols have increased in the Dean Park, New Farm Loch and Kennedy Drive areas of Kilmarnock in response to cases of “intimidation” and havoc caused by thugs who started fires.

“This is completely foolish and foolish behavior.” We are working with local businesses to prevent the sale of alcohol to minors and our campus officers are in schools educating young people.
“Ultimately, having a criminal record can have an impact on the future of young people, especially employment prospects.
“But we cannot do it alone and I urge parents, guardians and caregivers to make sure they are aware of what young people are doing and support us in eliminating this type of behavior.”
Scottish Police are also working with bus companies and the UK Transport Police to stop the influx of young people from outside East Ayrshire.
