Emma B BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor (132* d) RE: BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor 27 Oct 10

"It seems odd that there was no federal game management personel around to protect the huge buck at Exmoor. Perhaps your government should stop spending itself into bankruptcy on social engineering programs and get back to basics like national defence, infrastructure building and public lands management."

As I said in my post of Date: 26 Oct 10 - 02:13 PM

"The UK system of land ownership and game laws means that landowners have free rein to kill permitted species on their own land or sell those right to others!"

From the Exmoor National Park site

"National Parks are part of a 'family' of protected areas in Britain. They are protected because the inspiration of their scenery and opportunities they provide for outdoor recreation are seen as being of benefit to the nation.

However, the term 'National Park' does not mean that such an area belongs to the nation.
Much of their funding comes from central government but they are not run or owned by government.

Like other large areas of countryside, they are made up of a large number of properties belonging to a variety of landowners.

In common with other areas of open countryside, much land belongs to large estates in private or public ownership, with private ownership being in the majority."
