Dumped urban fox's!

Recommended Posts

I think they wrote the provision within the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981 for grey squirrels as they are a non-native invasive invasive species. Obviously foxes aren't.

But the Abandonment of Animals Act 1960 was repealed with the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The wording of the old act did encompass abandonment causing unnecessary suffering, and I believe the new act seeks to include that provision. 

However it is arguable and doesn't state it specifically, and I respect your position.
