My wife’s grandmother used to live trap grey squirrels on her land and her only means of dispatch was by way of the water butt 🙈

Got this T shirt ^^^^^^^

although I’ve been lucky enough to catch up to 5 on the bounce in one and it catches in the same place every year 👍😊

I caught the same cat 5 times! A bucket of cold water over him as he came out the last time stopped him.

No worries I told him to ask a mutual friend that has a open ticket and could dispatch the fox in the guys garage. 

Sorry, did I read that right?!

Might I be right to assume anyone suggesting shooting a fox in a cage with a 12 bore has never actually shot a fox in a cage with a 12 bore?

I didn’t see anyone suggest a 12 bore..?

As a person who does this on a regular basis, call police 101 get a reference number after explaining you are legally dispatching a trapped fox on ground you have been given permission on by the owner of the land.

PS an air rifle at the the legal limit is sufficient! I've used air rifles, .22 rim and shotgun and dispatched hundreds in back gardens in major cities!

Why not just drive a good few miles away, find a quiet country lane open the trap & leave him go, that’s what I would do.

 Really!!!? To many "pest controllers" wildlife charities doing that all ready! And not just the odd one! Really need to stop and consider there actions!!! Just making it someone else's problem and causing havoc/imbalance to local wildlife and take livestock. Most can't hunt/ den/survive and a lot have mange. Quickly end up dieing, attacked, shot or road kill.   NB

RSPB shot 40 plus foxes at Minsmere alone last year! Bet that doesn't come out!  NB
