See there is a documentary tonight on foxes and features "those who hunt them" and apparently it includes "upsetting scenes"
Will be interesting to see what is broadcast.

Well, I'll say it again ahead of the programme: "Why should foxes be afforded any less management Best Practice than applicable to a qualifying DSCL2 witnessed cull?"

Clearly we can dispense with the carcass management element but are we really saying that in the battle for hearts & minds its possible to justify shooting vixens with young and with no credible plan to account for such starving offspring in a meaningful time frame?

Vermin they may be classed but this is the 21st Century and we should be doing better.

My opinion only of course.

Indeed, and in the same vane is it not time that the Deer Act was amended to abolish the killing of hinds out of season under the premise of crop protection. And while we are at it should not pigeons, crows, stoats, rats and mink etc have a season so as not to inflict suffering to their young.

It really isn't good enough that those who suffer damage from "vermin" are allowed to control such pests just to maximise profits.
