    Puma , yes

    Lynx .......how the feck was it going to attack a child ?

    I think it was a shameful act to kill a beautiful animal , local farmers probably sticking their nose in , those cruel bastards who support fox hunting etc
    Foxes are vermin

    The word vermin is used by people to describe something they don't like

    The fact is , the fox is our last apex predator left and if you don't fence in your chickens it's natural instincts will be to kill as many as possible as food is hard to come by in the winter , they are not mindless killers

    Unlike the people who hunt them down with packs of dogs and set terriers on their cubs

    A fox will kill every chicken in the coup, not because it's hungry just for the hell of it.
    The quicker the fox are eradicated the safer chickens will be.

    No you are completely wrong , foxes are scavengers and opportunistic killers ......they will kill a pen of chickens because they are wild animals and tend to bury what they have killed to preserve it .......they often return to chicken pens the night after a kill to make sure the food source is still there ....of course generally it isn't .......as the people who have failed to pen in their chickens properly have cleared up .......instead of accepting this is how a wild animal works they blame the fox

    Saw three fox cubs from the train as it was pulling out of Barry Docks a while back. They were unsure about the train, moving towards it, then away. Beautiful. I looked up the carriage to see if anyone else noticed this fantastic sight, but, naturally they were all heads down on their life support machines sending text messages. A few weeks back I saw an adult fox asleep in full view in broad daylight at the same spot.

    They are beautiful animals , I was out walking in the lanes a few summers ago in the early evening ........all of a sudden a young fox appeared in front of me , we sort of both froze and after looking at me for about ten seconds he just turned his back and gently vanished into the field

    I can't believe people take pleasure from hunting down a wild animal with dogs until it is exhausted and tearing it to bits , the death for a fox is rarely quick , the hounds often take some time to kill it .....don't believe the nonsense from the countryside alliance , the league against cruel sports have extensive videos which are too distressing to post online

    As far as I am concerned those who enjoy fox hunting are in the same league as the people who go badger baiting or illegal dog fighting

    Re: Escaped lynx shot dead for ****s sake

    And from another expert
    "OFF THE MENU
    The critical thing here is not what a lynx *could* do, but what a lynx *would* do; throughout recorded history, the 10,000 or so lynx across Europe, and the 30,000+ across Russia and Asia, have never attacked a human being; child or adult."

    With the ease that news is distributed around the world nowadays when has anybody heard or read about a Lynx attack on a human ?

    They are afraid of people , like most wild animals , and with good reason considering we seem to be hell bent on wiping out nature

    Apparently it was hiding under a caravan in caravan park that had been shut down for the winter. The caravan was blocked in on three sides - so there was only one way out. A council official wouldn't let the zoo team in to tranquillise it until the council official had made an inspection. The council bod - fell down a grass bank - disturbed the lynx which then decided to run out - where it was shot by the council 'marksman'

    If they had just let the zoo team do their job - none of this would have happened.

    Awful.
    So in other words the Lynx posed zero threat, got scared when some clumsy fícker went arse over tit and made a bolt for it. So for that reason an animal, we brought over here and is not native to this country, deserves to die?

    I despise the human race at times.

    Re: Escaped lynx shot dead for ****s sake

    It seems to me the Council were misadvised by the vet. In a statement they said they ď ... received additional advice late on Friday afternoon, November 10, from a specialist veterinary surgeon that the risk to public well-being had increased from moderate to severe ... ".

    Given the fact wild Lynx co-exist peacefully with humans in many European countries and that there has never been a single documented attack on a human anywhere then this advice was clearly wrong and irresponsible.

    This sad tale also goes to show just how far many people are distanced from the natural world.

    Re: Escaped lynx shot dead for ****s sake

    When we were rebuilding St Pancras there was a fox used to cross the Logistics yard every evening to go and scavenge in the waste. He/she lived somewhere behind Kings Cross. I sent an e-mail out to tell everyone collecting anything from the yard to wear gloves and work on the assumption that it might be contaminated with urine.
    That night it snowed and the next morning when I went in my car was covered in snow. The fox had walked to my car, up over the boot across the roof and down the bonnet.
    Where the feck did he see the email? He wasn't even on the address list!!!

    Re: Escaped lynx shot dead for ****s sake

    If it had crawled through someones cat flap and mauled some kid, the experts on here would be saying "why didn't they shoot the fecking thing when it was hiding under the caravan.
    I think the Vet is more qualified to make the call rather than people on a MB, don't you?

    Sounds like the vet made a right feck up here ........he's a vet , not a animal behavioural psychologist

    He or she is going to be asked some questions

    It's not even as if fox hunting makes any sort of difference to fox population numbers. It's just a thrill for bloodthirsty people in the same way that some enjoy shooting animals. I can't begin to understand why someone would do it.

    Given your new-found knowledge of the lynx, can you tell me how many cases there have been worldwide where they've entered a property using a cat flap and attacked the inhabitants?

    I'll give you a clue - the number is the same as the number of times you've posted anything accurate or interesting on here.

    As long as the marksman didn't aim at his brain. The bullet would bounce off given how dense it is.

    I the rabies scare a few decades back, did they increase hunting with dogs? NO - they went out with rifles.

    No , it's a disgrace and quite a lot of the locals agree, it's the toffs from the countryside that come in droves in their Chelsea tractors

    It's bloodsport
