Hi, I was drawn to the site by the link to Richard Bransons Lemur project. Then thought to post this thread after noting John Dineley's comment on a firearms related thread. The zoo and Wildlife Park industry faces an interesting situation: You need training before you are permitted to use a tractor, a chainsaw, a sprayer and chemicals, but apparently, all you need is no criminal record to take a firearm into a public place and discharge it at an escaped dangerous animal? We have worked for clients in the zoo industry for 25 years on enclosure design, electric fencing and over the last 15 years on firearms training. Anyone wanting help, advice, training or consultancy is welcome to contact us. As time served professionals with all the right contacts we have the answers. Andrew Venables WMS Firearms Training. Google either for more details.
