When were they released ?  Hunters have been known to take cages full of  birds up the Barranc de  Caramella. leave them overnight and then release at dawn.  The birds are so keen to escape that they make easy targets for the gun happy hunters (?).


They were released day before yesterday. about 5 in the evening, to multiply ready for the hunting season.

Does anyone have any strong feelings about shooting rats ?  Roll Eyes


None at all, it's more humane than poisoning them, but I probably wouldn't eat them. 

We've actually had more damage done to trees by wild boar and goats than rabbits.  We've also had seedlings eaten by mice.

It would be worth reporting this to the Agents Rurals.

We have three 'rabbit castles' near to us here that they build from piles of branches, pallets and earth, which are then fenced off to stop dogs from digging them up.

They then release baby bunnies into them and let nature take it's course.

A month or so later on they stand outside these warrens and blast away - what good sports they are.

Bulldog! I happen to have in my possession a picture single of Roland and Kevin singing Rat rappin'.
As a fan I thought you might be interested?

Merriman,  Not dissimilar to the raising of Pheasants, Partridge and Ducks etc. in the UK for the sport of those that can afford it ?
