‘One person stresses that the rowing club committee said it was “impractical” for the club to fine members who killed ducklings. Another person says it’s always gone on. It certainly would be impractical. Why? Because the acts are criminal, under the Countryside and Wildlife Act 1981. Any club might be in an awkward position if the way it deals with criminal behaviour is by imposing its own private fines and not informing the police. Imagine if a darts club took the same line on dogfighting.
I think this is an excellent issue to be addressed by whoever is standing as ‘Mr ASBO’ for police commissioner. It’s easy for everyone to understand: why should rowing club hooray henries, these disgusting excuses for human beings, be allowed to get away with acts which practically everyone in the non-toff population thinks are obscene and vile, and which are also very clearly unlawful? “Mr ASBO” should call for the full force of the law to be brought down on their heads. Posters could go up around Cambridge talking about these foul rowers who “dunk the fluff” for fun and somehow manage to stay out of the dock’
Original comment from prosecute toff scum now
It is clear that the Trinity boat clubs are actively engaged in a criminal conspiracy to hide evidence of widespread and illegal wildlife killing by their members. I’m checking whether this offence is liable to citizens arrest.
*****Citizens arrest not applicable for this offence.
