It is important that laws should be made for the good of the country and not to see law abiding citizens criminalised.
The above law is a bad law, unenforceable, wasting police time, an infringement of civil liberties and above all not making any difference to animal welfare. Foxes are shot and wounded and numbers are increasing. The newspapers have an incident nearly every day now of foxes savaging babies and children. They are not cuddly pets they are vermin and those who understand and run the countryside should be left to control them in time honoured fashion in just the same way as rats and rabbits.
