It works for the farmers using it...and I have no reason to believe that they are fools!

You obviously haven't noticed but the thread is about keeping Foxes out of the Tern colony...not keeping Sheep out of it :rolleyes

Yeah if they learn how to make pole vaults! You seem to know nothing of the personality type that Foxes are...they do not have the psychological characteristics of Pitbull Dogs or Honey Badgers..in fact they are the polar opposite and are high strung skittish creatures, one or two wallops from an e

On the subject of electric fences...the ones I have seen some farmers use have certainly not been expensive or sophisticated,made of just ordinary stakes and wire from the co-ops, usually they use 3 strands of wire and according to them (and they should know) they do the job fine. You don't need 12

Have you ever considered that all this Banging of large calibre rifles around the colony must be scaring the bejasus out of the birds and causing a lot of them to abandon their nests. And even if the shooters are using sound moderators on their guns it makes only a small difference...you cannot sil

I think most people would consider the shooting of such an individual Fox to be acceptable. What is not acceptable is the endless wholesale slaughter of every Fox. And another thing is the endless slaughter of all Foxes in the area will likely lead to a huge increase in the local Rat population. A

Electric fences are very effective and if on the rare event of a Fox figuring a way to get through, surely it is easier to deal with that rare animal than constantly killing every Fox in the countryside. And you mention "avian predators" aka birds of prey..how do you deal with them then? Is it a Ba

It's more than farcical that the demise of both the Tern and the Corncrake was caused by Humans. And Foxes are now the ones getting the bullets and snares because of it. You couldn't bloody well make it up :mad

Whatever the rights and wrongs of shooting the Foxes in this case..IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DONE WHEN THEY WERE REARING CUBS!. Foxes need at least a minimum protection in law..if even only in the interests of basic human decency and civilisation. They can't be just left totally unprotected in law a

Little Tern Project - 23 foxes shot

Electric fences DO WORK I know farmers who have been using them successfully for years to keep Foxes out of places such as sheep lambing paddocks. It is highly irresponsible for some posters here (vested interest ones) to be putting forward the falsehood that they don't, and by so doing attempting

The killing of the Otters is the kind of sh1t that happens to our wildlife on a massive scale in Ireland. The Otters are a huge tourist attraction on the Blackwater as the guys running the river cruises and Kayaking can tell you. And look at the derisory little penalties those cnuts got..they were
