GTA UPDATE No 176.
Natural England issue first of new General Licences

Under pressure from the countryside organisations, Natural England have granted the first of the new general licences for bird control.  This is their website statement

 

This first licence covers the control of carrion crows.  This can be found on the GTA website and is available for download here.

story continues below...

 


The legal challenge centred around the suggestion that other forms of control were not sufficiently covered.  Natural England have therefore issued another pamphlet,  available here and also on the GTA website which explains the use of lethal methods in context.

 


As licences for the other species appear they will be put in the downloads section of the GTA website.

  • I would encourage anybody who is already not a member to join the BASC and not to be complacent ; groups like wild justice will not be happy until all county pursuits are banned ;they will not stop at shooting ether ;next it will fishing and so on

  • Having read through the guidelines given under the licence, the requirement to carry out non-lethal methods first, or explain why non-lethal methods haven’t been used, have clearly been written by someone who has no idea about dealing with pest species. Also, the statement that it is legal to shoot to scare could be a legal minefield should you be challenged by either a legal body or one of the growing number of antis which are intent on disrupting any legal activity they come across but do not agree with.
