A Wild Life With Animals BANNED from FC Land

From the BBC – article here

An animal rescue group has been warned that it could be breaking the law if it recovers injured wild animals from Forestry Commission managed land. The charity A Wild Life with Animals has offered to run a 24-hour call out service for free in the Forest of Dean. Forestry Commission Rangers work 09:00-15:00 from Monday to Friday. The charity said leaving injured wildlife for more than 48 hours was “inhumane”.

Mr Passmore said he would be writing to The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to ask whether the FC might be in breach of animal welfare laws.

“We feel very let down and frustrated, this is simply a major failure of duty at management level to provide a humane and moral approach to animal welfare, not every animal that is injured needs to be shot and they deserve a chance to be helped where we can.”
