Their release will now need to be licensed.

Seems somewhat racist to me.

Just a braindead full of himself person who dictates what DEFRA can and cannot do because they cave in.

And they get paid from the public purse!?

If they could breed pheasants with a modicum of more road sense than a badger, a very low bar I know, then they would only need to raise 1/4 of what they do now.

You would need to devise a pheasant IQ test so one could selectively the Einstein's of the pheasant community.

I suppose introducing a large number animals into am environment is going to have an effect.

Is there a link to the study ? Who paid for it ?

Er, ooman, it's your species that needs to learn the rules of the road. Everywhere around our setts we put up big black and white signs by the roadside warning you that it's our territory and cars can't enter that stretch. You must have seen them...
