What the hell is that? If that decided it wanted to live anywhere close to my house I'd kill it, whatever it is.

According to Wiki the Coypu was eradicated in the UK in 1929, so it probably is a rat?

What's wrong with these furry creatures? Most of them are not dangerous at all, many are harmless and some can be tamed. Unless it makes something really bad, i.e. tries to attack people or steals food on regular basis, there's no reason to kill it.
The difficult we do today; the impossible takes a little longer.

Wiki must be wrong as the then ministry of agriculture was trapping for and catching coypu in the late 1970's As for the idiotic police investigating for a crime it is not illegal to kill a rat of whatever size by any means at your disposal as they are classified as vermin and coypu are a notifiable species which means that you have to by law tell the authorities if you spot them on your land. I think that the rodent in question is a rat of some type as coypu have a much blunter nose than the animal being held up.

That's Wikipedia for you: Confusing the public since 2001 ::)

It may be illegal to kill things and you might get into trouble with the police but to be honest if I find something on my property that looks like it might gnaw one of my legs off while I'm asleep I will get rid of it before it gets rid of me.
Of course I wouldn't go blabbing to the media afterwards. So who's gonna tell the police?

The real trouble in the UK is the fact that the "fluffy bunny brigade" don't like the though of anything getting killed. (Probably as they munch on there chicken sandwich). I get looks / comments of shock and horror when I tell them I go shooting game, even if it is destined for the pot.

As long as you like your beef and pork and whatnot, condemning ethical hunting is hypocrisy. By ethical i mean hunting that doesn't cause needless suffering to the prey. Fox hunting with a pack of dogs and general hullabaloo - no thanks, those idiots should eat their heads instead; quietly stalking the game on foot with a good rifle and skillful eye & hands - no problem whatsoever. Extremely few animals in nature die of old age and a well aimed bullet is a far better ending than the teeth of a predator. Living where i do, we do have an issue with moose; there is a significant number of traffic accidents yearly and they also like t oeat saplings in cultivated forests. The popularity of hunting with the younger generation has gone down so that it is hard at times to get the annual hunting quotas filled.
Personally i don't hunt but it is mainly due to lack of time. I know how to dismantle a cow, pig or sheep and have done it numerous times. Reminds you that meat does not come out of the fridge.

I'm a carnivore because I don't think anyone should kill plants... what did they ever do to anyone?

You cannot eat a pet......... But if it has no name, and is one of a herd, it is a tasty meal. One warthog was a 10m pet ( minimum approach 10m before disappearance) of sorts, in that I would walk near it with no problems, as long as I was not carrying anything long ( survivor of the pogrom to eradicate them) or was not driving a red vehicle ( game warden had a red pickup). I would not have shot him, but enjoyed one of his offspring as sunday lunch, I was too used to having the big guy around the workshop complex.

Well, about as much as the animals you do eat, don't you think?  ;)

Culling of rat populations by farmers is necessary to protect human food supplies & prevent disease.  The people bitching need to read up on the The Black Death and other pandemic plagues linked to distribution by rats. Or how much food is lost to rodents in countries where people are starving. I guarantee death by starvation or plague is not how they want to die.  ::)

Squirrels & flying squirrels I can deal with, but rats on or near my house will be dispatched upon sight!

Heres a fun rat fact. The FDA allows up to 1 rat hair per 100g of peanut butter and up to 9mg of rodent turds per kilo of wheat. source

Also this is how you get salmonella. Rats sneak into the grain storage in a chicken farm, get ground up (together with the grain) and fed to the chickens.
