Noted and signed and shared FB&T This is revolting there were other means of handling this situation without killing 14 foxes. This area was supposed to be a nature reserve, I personally think that they discovered the den and just made this an ample excuse. ‘B & D Pest Control carried out the operation using approved methods.
‘They are licensed to use firearms with considerable experience in this kind of pest control.

There should be a petition made up on this one. I don't really know how to do or I would.

Logic? You can't shoot them because new ones will move in and if you move them they will not?

I think they need to reinforce their banks ... maybe install some kind of grates that animals cannot burrow through.

There could of been a better way to move them to another location. Killing was a senseless way to act. Thanks Marie

I once again get be up for only a few hours before feeling the loathing of the human spices that I get to feel every day.
Of course there was another solution Maria Theresa but they would have thad to put thought, time and caring into it. How much easier to just shoot them. If karma exists, and I hope it does, I certainly would like to witness the karma that kicks th buss of people who do this and other barbaric things that people do to animals

This is a brainless decision made by low IQ subhuman species unknown to those of us who are well grounded on Earth. Beam them up, Scotty!!! These people don't deserve to be in a position of authority.

We need more laws that protect the natural instinct that animals have to allow them to live their lives in their habitats without being shot, mutilated and harassed. Where is the concern for these animals that were put on this earth? If we are such an advanced society why don't people in charge think ahead in these areas of problems that might come up and how to handle them.
