I believe that the correct wording is "for the killing of animals to protect other animals", but I'm not sure.Just a quick question to clarify and potentially learn something new...
Does ANYONE have the appropriate wording on their certificate to
'shoot a dog worrying their sheep'
Or would it be loosely contained under the 'any other legal quarry' wording?
I ask as I struggle to believe any constabulary would physically write that you have permission to slot mutley
AOLQ wouldn't cover it, because it is not lawful to shoot the dog.
There are no such conditions attached to a shotgun licence, so nothing there for anyone to get you with if the dog's owners decide to prosecute you for damage to their property (ie, the dog).
In reality, you shoot it with whatever you've got to hand, and hope for the best, but you could be leaving yourself wide open to a shed load of bother.
I have only ever used a shotgun for this purpose. It is not nice, but I have had no repercussions.
