The law is considered by some as "confusing" and "complicated", and containing "inconsistencies", in November 2013 the Law Commission consulted about the possibility of reform. Much of existing UK law dates from pre-Victorian times. Wildlife was viewed as a resource to be utilised by the landowner or occupier, phrases such as "game" or "sporting rights” appear. Public opinion is now much more in favour of protection of birds and mammals rather than the landowners’ interests.
