Not had trouble with the dogs but the sheep and cows eat the wire and it cuts all there insides to bits. not to mention they are still smouldering when they land. They are a liability.




thats strange, do they eat the wire around the fields which make the fencing? barbed wire lay on the floor, Or wire ties etc... thought they just ate fodder and grass..How do you know it cuts all there insides up? just an interesting subject..

As for a liability. The other friday evening when we had a celibration of life for a family friend, 22yr old boy who hung himself on xmas morning, they were perfect, and we let 100 go, into the air with messages on from loved ones, they definatly werent a liability then, and touched quite a lot of people...


I was photographing hound pups at the hunt kennels over the summer, whilst there i was asked by 1 of the local vets to photograph a PM ( batteries had gone on his camera) he was there to do on a bull....................... cause of death, ingestion of metal fragments, poisioned the beast. The vet was explaining how many cattle are lost to chinese lanterns. Not good. http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...



really, so it is a common fault then... Surely they will adventually be banned in this country, if they are damageing livestock, and other animals..

I dont know why they don't just use something other than wire that will biodegrade in the animals stomach or just naturally if left on the ground. Keep and eye out on dragons den for my biodegradable laterns :thumbs:

I must admit i was quite surprised when the farmer and vet were telling me. I suspect something will be done before long, given that this particular Bull was a show winning, prize breeding beast, worth a fortune and the Insurance company will be picking up the bill. :yes:

............. Having said that, townies and tourists have been damaging the countryside, livestock and other animals for years.............. and they've never been banned. :no:

The farmer I do some work for is always on about it. They just seem to pick it up and eat it, not saying they seek it out to eat it but if they come accross it they tend to eat it, have more trouble with the cows than the sheep and if anything swallows metal wire its not going to do much good to thier guts. If you want to let them off thats your business mate i'm just illustrating some of the problems they can cause. Very sorry to hear about the lad hanging himself mate.
ATB, Aaron.



Hey Aaron mate, thanks, and dont worry. I should imagine anything eating metal would f**k them up(apart from goats, lol)..Just think it strange that they would eat it, but when you think how thick a sheep is, then i surpose you realise why...There are many things out there which cause haRM.. These are no more dangerous than a plastic bag..

If A dog trips up over it, then it is one unlucky dog... As there are heaps of wire, metal, fence stakes, machinery, old gates etc, lying about in our countryside..



ALRIGHT RFYL NEVER SEEN ANY LYING ABOUT IAGREE ABOUT OLD MACHINES AND B/WIRE HOPE YOUR DOG MENDS QUICK ATB.

One of the biggest problems is that metal gets picked up by the forager as they make silage it gets broken into small pieces in the machine and then it gets eaten as silage.some foragers have big magnets to try and pick up the metal before it gets in to the machine.


Sorry to hear of your loss I can't think of a better way to symbolise some ones passing and I am sure it brought some comfort to those affected :thumbs:

Celebrating the life of your friend is admirable, however, letting off 100 lanterns isn't.
