Racoon Dogs?

Until I read this, I'd never heard of the problem.

If they get established in the UK, then hopefully, even post ban, I hope that we still have the hunters to sort the problem out. I certainly wouldn't want o depend on the ministry.

We have enough pests of our own in this country without anymore

Blimey Paul, that post was the best part of five and a half years ago.

yes.....since that post i have shot 11 more racoon dogs...they really are becoming a real treat to our native wildlife.

Government bodies are catching them, and fitting a GPS collar on them as "judus" animals, but they are still increasing in numbers.

On both the shoots I run, we have a shoot on sight policy.
