United Kingdom --(Ammoland.com)- The headlines this week: a wild boar goes mental and so to the residents of a Russian village, there’s a Mi’kmaq moose misunderstanding, David Cameron moves to lift the ban on hunting with hounds, Gilchrist does a Britney and Digweed straights the biggest prize in British clayshooting.
How do small-town Russians deal with a wild boar that’s on the loose? Answer: they run it over and smack it on the head with a china basin. It might not be sporting but it’s one way to bring home the bacon. Watch the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtVkBJcypIQ
In other news, David Cameron is backing calls to relax the ban on fox-hunting in England and Wales. Newspapers say the Prime Minister has ‘sympathy’ with calls by the Federation of Welsh Farmers’ Packs to scrap a law banning farmers from using more than two dogs to flush out foxes. It would mark a first step towards the coalition fulfilling its pledge to stage a free vote on repealing the controversial law altogether and follows reports of a surge in fox attacks on sheep flocks.
22-times world champion shot George Digweed has straighted the Stratstone Super Seven, the biggest prize in British clay shooting. With a choice of a super car as the top prize George is now in the running for a new motor. He told fieldsports channel news that it shows the infamous “Tower” is possible. Entry is £50 for 2 attempts at ‘The Tower’ with a 50 bird warm up and there’s still plenty of time to enter. Visit http://www.rbss.co.uk
Antis are spitting feathers. Students at a British university caused a storm of outrage from the liberal press when they plucked some partridges. Four Oxford Brookes freshers uploaded pictures to Facebook of them dealing with 17 birds. Humourless university officials decided the action so outrageous they issued the lads with an official warning.

Canadian hunters are apologetic after shooting an albino moose in Novia Scotia. The local Mi’kmaq Indians say that white animals are sacred after spotting these pictures on the hunters’ Facebook page. The hunters are returning the hide so the Mi’kmaq can perform a sacred ceremony. They get to keep the head.
And finally, game chef Mark Gilchrist has shaved his head for charity and a pint of Guinness. His trademark black mane was sheared off at a game event in Ireland at the weekend. Mark required no anaesthetic and he’s recovering well, especially when he sobered up and realised he had raised €300 for good causes.
