How about you provide the laws that you quoted prior to my post? You started to produce facts about law without any evidence, first.
Show me these 'laws' you are quoting please Kranky.
Here in the UK cats remain property regardless of where they are, or if they are wearing a collar.
The only correct thing you've stated in that post is that you don't have to stop if you run one over; unlike dogs.
And before you suggest it, the Abandonment of Animals Act was repealed some time ago....
Please, don't come on here giving such poor advice. The fact is, you are never allowed to willfully kill a cat unless you are prepared to stand up in court and explain to a magistrate what 'reasonable' measures you took to ensure it was feral.
I am prepared to stand up in front of a magistrate and tell them that I killed a cat that was on my property. It would never be heard before a magistrate and would never get to court. Provide evidence of one case where it has happened.
Please don't come on here giving such poor advice because your hand hovers over the delete or ban button and you believe you have the right to be sanctimonious and no one should question you.
Maybe you should report me to the RSPCA for humanely killing a cat and see how far those lunatics want to pursue it. I can tell you, from
personal experience, that it isn't anything that they want to get involved with.
I could quote endless acts of parliament at you, or even just refer you to Parkes and Thornley (which is the defininitive guide to rural law) but I'm not going to...
Because there is no point.
You'd rather believe a charity like the RSPCA when it comes to legal matters.
You crack on lad. And when you've stood in front of that magistrate, pop back on here and let us know how you've got on.........
That's my point, I've not had to stand in front of the magistrate and the RSPCA refused to get involved. You carry on laughing, you're not the font of all knowledge.
Are you the same Matt the rat, pest controller, that used to post on Jacks Shed?
