    BEAVERS

    Im working in Norway at the moment,today i was down near the Swedish border,a young lad was showing me a picture of a beaver he had shot and was proudly posing with.
    I mentioned that we are in the throws of reintroducing beavers into scotland,the company went quiet and then came the question WHY?????
    Which i was unable to answer seriously,they all fell about laughing when i mentioned that some folks think it a good idea to have a few wolves to keep them company
    It would be a good idea for the powers that be to have a trip over here and see whats happening in the real world..

    Nell,
    the powers that be wouldn't listen to a word, it would take a tactical nuclear explosion for them to take stock and listen to the people that its affects.
    Once again a minority group that thinks they know whats best for us,sorry to inform them that we can think for ourselves...

    The countryside fraternity really need to get up and smell the coffee these people are intent on ruining our land and if we sit back and allow them to do so they will..
    We need a to sponsor politicians,put forward politicians,put forward for members of the council,F.C council etc.
    Becuase unless we do something these minority groups will ruin our countryside our sport our heritage..

    Sorry.

    I did see an advert to join the NRA I don't know wether or not they would fight a better fight than any of our organisations, they are extremely active in the US..
    Does anyone know if the UK version is akin to the US version with their tenacity in fighting for their members.

    regards

    Now tell me this after reading one of the above posts about someone eating a beaver sounds tasty the question being .

    Are they on a protection list for the uk in general ,as they have not been indigenous to the country for many a year ,if they are not and we come across one can we dispatch it by what ever means at our disposal at the time ????????
    I know there are captive studies going on in Scotland at this moment they have had escapees which were re captured BUT if the had not it would then be a wild species what can we do if we come across one that has escaped .
    Ive only tasted the one type of beaver much the same as jingzy was on about, quit fancy a taste of the four legged variety Ive had a taste of bear, snake, seal and a few others something else try wouldn't go a miss .

    There's one loose somewhere in Devon or Cornwall. I think you are perfectly free to shoot it if you come across it somewhere you have permission but I'd have to ask why you'd want to?

    I'm against introducing new species even if they were once indigenous although it is hypocritical of me to say this having shot some wild boar and enjoyed the experience.
