    Fantastic country file tosh letting everyone know how good it is to keep reintroducing predators into the countryside and what a big success it is (townie file )

    Would rather have boar and lynx than muntjac, at least they were native fauna until - in ecological terms - recently.

    Boar can scarify woodlands aiding regeneration, and provide sport.
    Lynx take a few roe - so what

    Bring them back

    They did say each lynx will take at least 50 roe a year, just how many do you have on your cull target? You will save yourself a fortune on ammunition and will be able to sell those rifles as well! Quids in.

    Not far from the truth probably, I expect they'll want a ban on shooting in the area their released into so as to allow them to become established Naturally lol

    Boar are back and here to stay.

    And as Roy Dennis states there is plenty of food available for lynx, social and political perceptions are the problem. Fortunately more of the general population are in favour of reintroductions and there is a growing number of wealthy and landed supporters backing it. 50 roe from 100 to 1,000km2 home range is not a big number. They will also take rabbit, foxes and smaller prey - so 50 is a high estimate. Despite our efforts, disease, RTAs the trend is an increase in deer populations and ranges (BDS & DI). I don't mind sharing deer if our reduced and comparatively boring fauna can be restored somewhat.

    In Belgium, Germany - Bavaria, Harz, France - Vosages, Jura, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Baltic states, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic, Bosnia, Hertzegovina etc where Lynx numbers are stable or increasing hunters are not flogging their guns.

    Hmm don't think your ideas of Lynx would go down well in Finland. There the Lynx population has exploded, especially in northern Finland. The Roe population has crashed in some areas, and on my friends farm near Pippolla he reckons he know has too many Lynx and now no Roe deer and this seems to be the case across many areas.

    Getting a Lynx licence is not easy either. The above area they applied for 12 licences and got one. You can only hunt them around this time of year, and at the last phone call some days ago there was no snow and lots of rain. Making it impossible to hunt Lynx.

    Lynx in the U.K ...............not really the room and too many people and dogs. 65 million live in the UK, only about 6 million in Finland.
