    shooting dogs worrying livestock

    Has any one got a condition on their certificate for shooting dogs with a rifle, i know i can do it with a shotgun, but a rifle is more humane.

    Rubbish. Have you ever seen a dog worry livestock? They don't stand for a nice shot.

    Unless they are your livestock it's really not a can of worms you want to open.

    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.

    People that would shoot a dog deserve the wrath they unleash upon thereselves. Unless you are a farmer and can prove the dog you shot was causing you losses you will wave your licences bye-bye.

    Actually had it as a condition on my FAC , for 222, years ago. (80s)We used to get a lot of bother and the police were more than happy for it to go on. Quite often the dogs were strays and just as wild as a fox on the hill, since dog wardens came on the scene it has pretty much stopped

    not anymore, although the wording is vague enough to cover you. I have no intention of doing it now though.

    If they were my dogs I would shoot them my self. There is no place for dogs that worry stock and once they have done it they will always do it. the problem is as almost always the fault of the owners.

    +1 a lot of dog owners are irresponsible idiots, the dog suffers for their stupidity, some people just havn't a clue

    As someone who losses lambs every yr and even a calf one yr to dogs, you are dreaming if you think you will shoot one with a rifle. I have had to run one over with a quad as I did not have a gun and it was moving so fast.
