    Animal aid.

    Grey squirrels are a destructive invasive species. Would there be the same outrage if rats were being culled?

    Found a dead roe buck

    I didn't notice anything unusual when I moved it. I think the other side is badly decomposed so would be hard to see an exit wound. I live in Berkshire. Should have checked the other side, probably too late now. I thought it possibly could have been a dog attack/animal attack but I didn't see any sign of a struggle. Hopefully there isn't a disease going around.

    I didn't notice anything unusual. How does the vegetation affect them? There's lots of vegetation growing at this time of year.

    I think the holes are due to either crows or maggots. Land belongs to a school, so It's unlikely it was shot.

    Found a dead roe buck

    I was walking in a private area of land. In an area of grass bordering a wood I came across a dead roe buck. Looked like it dropped dead on the spot. I saw it alive a week or two ago and it looked healthy. I wonder how it died. Never seen something like this before.

    Killed a hedgehog.

    Do you have any rat pics?

    I prefer peanut butter because they can't carry it away.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'll post a picture of the rat once I've caught it. Rats seem a lot more intelligent than squirrels. I've caught many squirrels in my cage trap but rats are much more wary.

    Nearly trapped the rat last night with a cage trap. I hope I haven't educated it as it managed to escape before the door closed.

    Thank you. I've set a cage trap tonight, I'll use a fenn once I find a good tunnel. I'll let you know once I've caught it and I'll send some pictures.

    That'd be worse than catching a hedgehog. I've only seen a polecat once.

    Thank you. I'll try a premade tunnel and see if it works, if it doesn't I'll make one myself. Quite a few hedgehogs must be killed by these traps because many of the tunnels I've seen are big enough for a hedgehog.

    Killed a hedgehog.

    Pretty annoyed right now... Last night I set my fenn trap in a brick tunnel and used metal pegs to restrict the entrance. Unfortunately a hedgehog managed to get through and was killed by my trap. Is there anyway I can stop hedgehogs getting killed in my fenn trap, or should I just use live traps? Has anyone else killed hedgehogs accidently? (I set the trap to kill rats which I have seen in my garden on my trail camera)
