There is no comprehensive statutory definition of the term 'game'1, but it has been variously defined for the purposes of particular Acts. Thus in the Game Act 1831, 'game' is deemed to include hares, pheasants, partridges, grouse, heath or moor game and black game2. This definition appears also in the Night Poaching Act 1828, but with the addition of bustards3. The Poaching Prevention Act 1862, however, omits bustards and adds rabbits, woodcock, snipe, and the eggs of pheasants, partridges, grouse and black or moor game
