THE SLAUGHTERING OF FOXES. To the Editor of the COUNTY OBSERVER. SIS,—With reference to the paragraph in your paper last week, re Slaughter of Foxes," it should have been added that, in addition to the losses mentioned, Mr Rickards, of the Priory, Usk, also lost a valuable spaniel, presumably from the same cause, and he offered a reward, jointly with Mr Curre, to try to find out the perpetrator of such cruelty, but, unfortunately, without effect. This year, there is little doubt but that the mischief has been caused by the poisoniug of rooks, as a great number have been found dead and dying in the neighbourhood, some of which have, doubtless, been eaten by foxes. It is a great pity that farmers should use such means to save their corn, as it is impossible to know where the mischief will end, and, in this case, it is more than probable that innocent persons are blamed, and, as I believe that no farmers, or at least very few, would deliberately spoil sport, I am writing to say, in the interest of sport alone, how sorry I am that such a thoughtless act should have been committed. Yours truly, HOPTON A WILLIAMS. Llangibby, April 13th, 1905.
