Thread: just had a visit from RSPCA

  1. #1

    just had a visit from RSPCA

    sat here having lunch, knock on the door from a bloke in uniform, tels me he has had a report of me trapping birds,

    you mean the larson trap? someone let the call bird out a couple of weeks ago,

    had a reasonable chat, he wants to call me out for RTAs locally for deer.

    Braver man than me. I wouldn't have let them past the front gate without a warrant and attendant police officers.
    Many a person been caught out by what seems to be a nice person.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Glad to hear it ended well mike but I wouldn't do rtas for them as I'd be too worried about being set up :/

    Bob,

    I had a similar visit a couple of years back. Was just about to tell her to sling her hook but then thought, no sod it, I'm not doing anything wrong or illegal so let her in. After one look at the larsen she asked me if I'd had many and on hearing I had, she was glad due to the damage they were doing to the song bird population. That was the only time I have ever met someone from the RSPCA with an iota of sense. My only other encounters with them have been like trying to educate pork!

    as above unless they have a police escort with a warrant hunt the buggers , nothing more than a member of the public in fancy dress,
    i know of a guy who the SSPCA would bring injured birds , and did so for years , next thing they tried to prosecute him for having british birds without the correct paperwork THAT THEY HAD BROUGHT HIM
