Thread: not very humane dispatch

    not very humane dispatch

    talking to a friend/neighbour whom should no these things? about a water bufferlo involved in a RTA armed responce where called to dispatch the stricken beast only the car that attended was only equiped with .223 and fmj ammo. I no some cars carry 7.62 but apparently it took five shots to the head to dispatch the poor animal any thougths

    Yes, a couple..
    WTF is a water buffalo doing in Chesterfield??
    Police aren't normally permitted to dispatch animals which is why the likes of us get called out.
    However, 5 shots or just 1 is irrelevant if it is still the quickest way to end suffering I reckon. The main problem is that untrained persons don't appreciate the exact location of the brain.

    I guess I now need a condition on the FAC for deer and "water buffalo in the Chesterfield area." Does anyone know if this is a standard condition or will it be another made up one?

    I feel a whole new thread coming on - ideal cartridge for water buffalo near Chesterfield.

    Just out of interest, where on earth is Chesterfield? No reason.

    I wonder if one was called by the police or animal welfare to dispatch this animal for them and you turned up with a .223 and then took the five shots to kill the beast, how long would it be before you were called into question about whether you really fit to shoot game.

    That's the shooters fault - not the calibre.

    A 22rf at point blank will kill a water buffalo. A 223 FMJ would damn near blow its head off?
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    Glad to hear that the rain has been bad down your way as well. Fields are very very wet but the water buffalo have not arrived yet.

    I would have thought the Glock 17 would be more appropriate for HD

    Unfortunately out of the big five we only had a couple of herds of elephants the last month. Another ranger in Preston claims he saw a few black rhinoceros in an asda car park but I think it is too early for them to rut.
