Canids -Foxes, Jackals, Wolves, Coyotes and other UK mystery canids
Up-dated 2011 edition includes section on sarcoptic
mange in foxes and treatment plus a list of wildlife sanctuaries and
rescue centres in the UK.
By the 1700s the British fox was on the verge of extinction and about to
follow the bear and wolf having been hunted for sport for centuries.
The answer was to import thousands of foxes per year for sport. But
foxes kept dying out so jackals were tried. Some were caught, some
escaped. Even wolves and coyote were released for hunting.
The summation of over 30 years research reveals the damnable lie of
"pest control" hunting but also reveals the cruelty the animals were
subject to and how private menageries as well as travelling shows helped
provide the British and Irish countryside with some incredible events.
The Girt Dog of Ennerdale is also dealt with in detail.
