I live on a hundred hectare stud on the fringes of Newmarket.

I’ve never actually seen a badger on the stud, but a couple of years ago, we had a lot foxes and not many rabbits. It’s funny, but since the ban on hunting, the foxes have all but disappeared and the rabbits have bred… Well, like rabbits.

Could it be that a fox is now worth more to the poacher and the fur trade than it was for sport?

As a scientist I wish I had more than just a feeling about this. But as a countryman, I know something has happened.
