Gents - Having seen this: First case of it's kind: Man told to pay £1,500 after being found guilty of drowning a squirrel | Mail Online I am concerned. I shoot squirrels, and have caught a few in a catch-them-alive trap (which I then shot, but more easily...). I 've never thought of drowning them, but would do it if I ever ran out of blunt instruments, boots, bricks, etc. - in other words, it's unlikely. My question to the learned masses of ARRSE shooters and outdoors types is - can I keep on killing grey squirrels, as long as I don't drown 'em? I consider them vermin that eat my fruit and veg, as well as upsetting more deserving wildlife. What else can I kill? Currently I cull the wood pigeon, magpie, jay, squirrel and rat populations (unable to get the bloody heron - as yet). Oh, and sorry it's in the Daily Hate - can't be helped.
