ID:	12983 OK, I'm in the fortunate position that I have permission to shoot this field behind my house, but I have a problem with a fox! He's killing all the rabbits that I want to shoot and I only shoot sub 12ftlb so can't take him on myself. The land is not suitable for centre fire etc. He's a bold little bugger, I've squeaked him within 6 feet of me at dusk in plain sight and he's driving my jack Russell's mad. Does anyone have a big bore FAC air riffle that would like to come and take him out for me?

    Is he eating them, or just killing them for sport? If he's eating them, that's his right IMO. It's not like he's got the money to trot to Tesco*.

    * Other vendors of fine foods are available. The "T" simply provided me the opportunity for a little alliteration.

    Fair enough, but the local spar shop does credit, or he could go to the food bank lol

    The worst mass slaughter we ever had was done by a Badger
    Went out to let the Hens out and they were all sitting on the floor of the Hut which has slatted flooring. They were all looking very sorry for themselves.
    The Badger had nipped the legs off all of them; apparently not an unusual occurrence but it upset all of us as we had to destroy all our Marans hens
