i went for a walk at about 2am last night and i passed sopme men in campflague with some lurcher / whippet type dogs.. at first thought nothing of it but when i came back down onto the beach and looked up at the orme, i could see a HUGE beam... and it was the same men again.. clearly after rabbits.. i thought this was illegal? theyre obviously doing it regulary because when i walk the dogs up there. i often come across rabbits that have been torn in half. often had the kids with e who gt really upset at the site.. i really hate it, the fact they can do it and get away with it. its sick, its cruel and its evil..

its scary too because i have a chihuahua and a chihuahua cross pomeranian. if i had been walking them last night those dogs wouldda torn mine to pieces simply because thats what theyve been trained to do.
i did actually have my 8week old pup with me but she was wrapped in a blanket and zipped in my jacket but what would have happened if she had jumped down for any reason

Kitty love do take care walking out on your own at that time, you don't know who you might meet, I agree with you about the disgusting sport of lamping, these men doing it could let there dogs do damage to or kill your lttle dogs.
Please take care.

i would report them and not give a damn if the whole world knew id done it if anyone would listen but everytime ive rang police or rspca ect in the past theyve not done nothing..
the police actually said to me that im wasting their time because they dont deal with animals. i was so fuming with them because it is ILLEGAL after all but the bobbies here dont do anything no matter what the crime.
i find the rspca quite useless too tbh. everytime ive called them theyve done nothing. i find they run more of a business than a charity ad would much rather give time to another charity.
of course id worry if i did report them then theyd deliberatly have theirr ogs kill my chihuahuas so that would be a reason to do it annonymusly.. but really is nowhere in my area that would give a damn, somethig was in our local newspaper about 7months back about lamping and the authorities refusing to do anything. caused a huge debate and clearly nothing was done.

lamping rabbits with dogs is NOT illegal however they must have permission of the land owner if they are on land on the beach doesnt count which is why the police cant do anything kitty and the rspca have trouble proving who it is unless they can catch them at it which means setting up obs to get the proof they need and be able to catch them
lamping foxes IS illegal though although i doubt thats what they were doing

and i agreee you becareful out walking at that itme in the morning hun


19 rabbits 3 parrots and a dog

Lamping is legal, as long as the people involved have permission from the landowner, AND obviously a gun licence if one is used, wild rabbits are classed as pests.

You say its on the beach? Surely, unless its a private beach its under the jurisdiction of the local authority? Therefore they wouldn't be allowed to lamp? or to have guns on public property?

Lamping is not illegal, it is a way of controlling the ever growing population of wild rabbits, who like mentioned are classed as pests.

No they shouldnt be leaving torn rabbit all over the place (even if it was them lets not forget that foxes are known for making a pretty big mess) but if i were you i wouldnt get into the working your dog arguement (its just not worth it). And just because u happen to know this lad that you saw lamping, y does that make him all of a sudden a really bad person??

yeah not sure wot the rules would be about having guns in a public place like that? Do they actually use guns or just the dogs? I dunno, not been out lamping!
We had same problem with poaching deer, we found someone else shooting on our land and reported them - police werent the slightest bit interested. Apparently u can do wot u want nowadays..and they were shooting with RIFLES which are especially dangerous, even worse coz they were in a hurry to shoot it and leave before getting caught.

lots of people in this area lamp usually just with the dogs. i know its not illegal if they have the land owners permission. and a policeperson is not goin to bother going to find out if they have permission or not. onlky way they are going to investigate is if the landowner reports them

are you kidding me?
i dont jusge many people but yes i find getting pleasure from watching your dogs tear up another living animal is pretty damn sick and im sorry if it offends anyone but that is my opinion. if they wanna get a gun and shoot it to take home and eat then so be it. not something i could do but i wouldnt judge them fo it... makes it even worse when i cant even walk my dogs because theirs are trained to kill.
i remember a comment this lad made to me once he laughed at bindi and said that aint a dog, my lurcher would tear it in half. im so glad i never waked bindi with him now.

im not sure if the great orme is owned by anyone.. i would think it was owned by the government or something. its not on the beach, its on the mountain by the beach you see. i dont know what laws would be and no tabby they not using guns just the dogs. like i said i wouldnt be so angered if they had shot them coz its nice and quick.. i dont like it but i wouldnt judge them for it.. i find the chase n then being ripped to shreds incredibly evil. i remember when i was little and a friend got a new kitten. we were playing in the front yard with it ~(they never had a fencce round their yard it just led straight into the street. a man a couple of doors down came out (he took his dogs lamping) and said something to my friend and told her to take the cat in or hed let his dog have it. my friend told me to get her mum and their was loads of sqealing, and my friend screamed, we went out and the man was stood laughing after hed let his dog tear up her kitten right in front of her we were only about 8.

erm i dont see why the rabbits would be a nuisance up the orme. anyone whos been to llandudno would see their is nothing for them to make a nuisance of up there lol. i love driving up the orme. turning off the headlights and watching all the rabbits, foxes, horses, goats ect that roam around up there.

i would have thought it was owned by someone maybe ask in the shop that is there they might be able to advise you .
i agree with you if they want to do it then fine but it is so cruel to have the dogs just rip them up and then people have to come across these poor animals.
ive been to the great orm numerous times on the mini runs and its a beautiful place i enjoyed taking my children to but i certainley wouldnt take them if i thought they were open to witness things like that .

I know people who do it on private land, have nothing against workng dogs (mine are!) BUT i dont think its right to be doing it in a public place and leaving debris - thats not very professional either, is it.

ah right, well i am one with working dogs myself (although they are gundogs, not sighthounds/lurcher types) I think the experiences Kitty has had with bad people has formed her opinions (and fair enough, i wouldnt wana see a kitten ripped up in front of me, nor have my dogs threatened with death either..) U get good and bad with all of these practises be it shooting/lamping/hunting etc. Hopefully us good 'uns can help to sway people's opinions by doing it all properly and legally. :o)
