That unemployed people should be allowed to hunt rabbits and such.

Unemployed people are stuck. Their only income is that provided by the state, which is minuscule. Why should they not be able to hunt and fish?

Why does this matter?

Wild animals do not belong to anyone. The mere fact that they live and breed in certain places (public places) does not mean that they are owned by the landowners. In order to supplement the bare living allowance that the state provides, people ought to be able to hunt and fish.

    Is rabbit hunting against the law?
    Where/if can it be done?

  2. Bryan Higgins says:

    Unemployed people should concentrate on getting a proper job. Job hunting is the only hunting that they should be doing. The Govt hand outs are so meagre because it comes from other peoples wages. I do not work to keep the unemployed alive. In fact if I had my way the unemployed would not get any free money.

      “You do not work to keep the unemployed alive”……. I bet if you had your way you would have them shot.

      It’s so easy to condem.

      However if the govt. did something about creating a vibrant job market with real jobs not minimum wage Mickey Mouse service industry jobs then we may not have to pay people to sit at home because there’s nothing else to do.

    What would be the point of unemployed people being allowed to hunt rabbits? you can’t eat them because of myxomatosis. I’m not sure that there is a statute forbidding it anyway, rabbit hunting and shooting goes on all over the UK, the noise used to wake me up 6am sometimes.

    errr, whats stopping them? Just to clarify the law here, wild animals are the property of the landowner. People pay for shooting rights/permissions, why should the unemployed have the right to hunt freely over whatever ground they choose? Whats stopping unemployed people hunting anyway? go beating £100 per week no tax and free pheasants? DUH!

    Thank god we don’t live in a country with Bryan Higgins as leader. And he quotes “I do not work to keep the unemployed alive”. WOW! how about this for an idea. I will let HM government keep all the dole money they dont want to give me, and i will take back all the money i have paid in tax and NI contributions for the last thirty years. How does that sound?……..I hope you never become unemployable Adolph Higgins

    • Reg Waite says:

      Well said my man. People like Mr Higgins have no sense of reality…..Definately a case of I’m all right Jack.

  7. David Fox says:

    What a ridiculous proposal. What does it matter if they are unemployed? How would a landowner know?

  8. Ditch Boultbee says:

    Why hunt them when you can breed them very easily and they are available whenever you need them and disease free too !!

  9. Natalie says:

    “Wild animals do not belong to anyone”

    Exactly. So why should unemployed people have any more right to slaughter them than anyone else?

    Also, would this legislation include free rifles for the unemployed? Gun licenses?

    Most of the unemployed have already paid for their meagre incomes while they were employed.

    ‘ I do not work to keep the unemployed alive.’ Brian Higgins

    The richest 1000 people in the UK (income £155Bn) do not work yet contribute the least to society.
