Thread: Running Dogs

  1. #1

    Running Dogs

    We have an occasional issues with running dogs in our area, and last night farmer was contacted to check some activity and found the attached image. (CWD doe still alive) The handlers were not showing their presence.

    He questioned if he would be within the law to shoot the dog.
    Does anyone have experience of this situation?

    No you cannot shoot the dog, deer are not livestock and its on a public highway

    Private farm track Taff, we are not that simple.

    The issue is what to do? The police don't always appear, do you just let the dog free to roam as it wishes or for the handlers to come out of hiding and reclaim the dog?
    I suspect I have seen this crew operating on a few farms locally, including the one I can see from where I type. I have trail cam footage of them following dogs on a quad (footage not clear enough to identify individuals, but audio is clear enough to recognise a very distinct accent) Its damn frustrating just to let the buggers get on with it.

    I have exactly the same issues. But our lot are bold as brass, do it in broad daylight and get aggressive when you approach them. Was threatened on Friday when I politely asked them to leave, something along the lines of "nice place you have there, would be a shame if something were to happen to it".

    Police turned up to the call a few weeks ago and arrested 2 men and a dog. Their story was that they were just walking the dogs, not doing anything wrong and because there was no dead hare it was decided there was not enough evidence to take it any further. There were 8 of them, one of me and that ratio of witnesses doesn't stack up in court.

    I suspect that if you had shot the dog there might have been repercussions. One farmer locally did that and woke up a few mornings later to find his 3 springers had been poisoned.

    Don't know what the answer is. We have gated every entrance and put staked into the ground behind the hedges so they can't get vehicles on the ground. It has stopped the vehicles but they still park up and come in on foot. I think all you can do is keep calling the police and make it easier for them to go somewhere else.

    Think it may be time to thin the hare population out.

    Stick the dogs in a vehicle and take them to the local pound as strays

    When they knocked us over at Christmas (Barnes, nicked quad, trailer, strummers, chainsaw etc.) I caused so much trouble I had both the Chief Constable and the local MP come round to my place to try to placate me. I couldn't do much more.

    Police have their hands tied to a certain extent by the CPS and the Courts. If they don't have what the CPS have decided is "sufficient evidence" they are not allowed to proceed, and unfortunately the days of the old bill going round to "have a chat" and give them a taste of what will happen if they carry on doing what they are doing are long gone with the PC brigade just waiting to have a go at the police for being heavy handed.

    You just get palmed off with excuses about why they can't do anything "on this occasion". Trouble is there never seems to be an occasion when they can do something about it.

    Also , I believe some beat cops are cut back so hard , be lucky if they can attend at all ,
    I'm not anti police but I said before the police now in this country are just there basically to mop up after the fact .
    Going to come to a point where some poor sod is going to take matters into their own hands as no one else including law of the land won't help them .
    Then whose at fault ?.....
