OK you pest control experts out there, please see if you can help me on this one. I got called to a rat job on a housing estate where there was a substantial infestation of rats in the garden of a private house,which were spreading onto a number gardens. The housholder was feeding birds and there was also a healthy population of grey squirells. The lady of the house told me they were catching rats in a live catch trap and releasing them away from their property. (My passing comment was that it was illegal to do that.) The next day there was a request from the son of the householder a guy in his forties for a freedom of information request as to where the legislation is that states it is illegal to re release rats.
I have 4 ways of bringing about a prosecution, if I can prove they are releasing and where, but has anybody heard of this before and does any body have knowledge of wording in legislation which I can use.Wf1
