|PM with hunt|
|Dogs killing a fox|
- Poison – but this was a risky method as other animals might eat the poison and the fox would die slowly in its den.
- Trapping – he said that this was a cruel way of killing. He said that he had seen a fox that was so badly injured they had to get the RSPCA out to kill it humanely. He said that foxes were known to try and gnaw their legs off to get away.
- Shooting – he said that the marks person had to be extremely good to be able to shoot a fast running fox and hit it on target, killing it in one shot. You needed to be an accurate shot otherwise the fox would die a slow death going back to it’s den if it could make it
- Hunting with dogs – he said that if you disregard the chase, the fox was killed very quickly by the dogs and were only ripped apart after they were already dead. He said that this method was quick and always certain.
My thoughts following the meeting
