Thread: Dispatch .

  1. #1

    Dispatch .

    Got a call to one of my permissions this afternoon to dispatch what they thought was an injured deer . Their poor dog was getting the blame as he was barking at it .
    Upon arrival it was sat alert but obviously unable to stand so quickly dispatched with shot to head.
    It very quickly became obvious that the dog had played no part in this !

    Yes it is ,it had several like that , I only had my phone to use for pictures and that didn't like working with my gloves on .

    As soon as it became obvious that I wasn't going to feed the carcass to the dogs then I put the knife away and got the land owner to bury the carcass with his digger .

    You mean you reported the carcase to AHPA as you are legally required to do so?!

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    OOPS, not the first time i have seen this result posted on this forum, you should have done what Apache said.
    Not sure how you could rectify this now other than digging it up and taking samples for the vet, but it might be too late.
    You are located in the SW, would that be England?
    It's not always TB, but of the 2 deer i submitted for testing one deer was a confirmed case.
    Cheers

    And that is why all people shooting deer should hold DSC1 minimum. Not wishing or interested in starting another DSC argument and the OP knew that the carcass wasn't right (which a lot may not have even known) but he wasn't aware that he had an odligation to report such things. The BDS sell a handy little book with photos and phone numbers for just this reason http://www.bds.org.uk/index.php?opti...&product_id=53 Money well spent IMO!

    Per Apache's post, it's well worthwhile to have the number of the local office of the Animal Plant & Health Authority saved in your mobile phone.

    They have a handy-dandy postcode search facility: APHA - Postcode search - APHA Field Services

    Sadly the web page provided in the Best Practice Guides - at least the UK version - is out of date on this

    It's even easier than that - there is a single national number now for all contact - 03000 200 301
