Thread: Advice: Fox on rented land

    Advice: Fox on rented land

    I rent a small field with barn for my chickens. The fox has come visiting today. Can I shoot it (as the tenant) or do I have to get permission from the owner? It's only my neighbour so it's not too much trouble but I want to kill the f**ker tonight as I am displeased.

    Thanks.

    You need permission from whoever holds the shooting rights
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    Guess that's the neighbour then - have to chat to him tomorrow. I thought there might be some sort of allowance for tenants when their livestock are getting nailed. Cheers anyway!

    Charlie lives for one more night.

    Depends, on the terms of your tenancy, Game and Deer would probably be under the control of the landlord but not foxes, but why not just check with him and then get even, good luck, W.S.
    Walk little- look often .

    Cheers - don't know why I didn't think of asking him this before. It's a very informal arrangement but I don't want to go breaking any laws!

    I'm sure u'll be fine but there is some very strange tennancy agreements and sporting lleases around (if small acres and informal will not be an issue).
    I tendered for 1 shooting lease where foxes and rabbits where included in the sporting lease, never seen that before and didnae actually think it was legal thought farmers had the right to control vermin

    God I hope it's not a badger, if it is then I really do have a problem, you're right... There is a sett in the wood on the hillside above us, maybe 300 metres away or so. However, in between that and the field is an area of steep rough ground covered in bramble bush thickets, lots of rabbit holes. Perfect fox country really... (I say, hopefully!)
