Fieldsports Britain – Ratting Riot


One of the Kings of England named ratting as his favourite sport. It’s easy to see why. We’re out with the Kent & Sussex Ratters as they take apart an old farmyard. It’s a haven for rats, and their dogs work hard to despatch as many as they can. Plus we are deerstalking with thermal: is it sporting? Tim Pilbeam and Cai Ap Bryn discuss. And we have the story of a peregrine killed in Derbyshire. The antis say it was shot. We find out that it was run over. David’s is on the News Stump and Charlie has Hunting YouTube, completing this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
