About this title


  • All of the most popular methods of controlling the fox population
  • Based on current conservation attitudes

    The control of the fox population is an important part of countryside management and conservation and is needed to maintain a balance in the countryside. Throughout the book, Sean Frain emphasises the need for responsible control of fox populations rather than the needless slaughter of large numbers, which is both cruel and unnecessary. The reasons why control is necessary and the most effective, selective, and humane methods are discussed. The book highlights the need for the hunter to show respect for his quarry while at the same time carrying out necessary controls.

  • About the Author:

    Seán Frain has been keeping, working, and breeding terriers for thirty-five years and is the author of over twenty books, including the best-selling The Patterdale Terrier (978-1-904057-57-4). He lives close to the Cumbrian border, where Patterdale terriers have been bred and worked for decades, and has carefully researched the bloodlines of working breeds of terrier and those who have bred them.
