Signal crayfish fall under a standard free to apply for permission to trap crayfish licence, free to apply for providing you have landowners permission.

 

Rabbits fall under the general game license, if it's not on the list you can't legally hunt them.

The way I've always understood it, with the notable exception of livestock obviously.

 

Is that killing a wild animal would be illegal without the general game license, which isn't an actual license but a government approved list of species that can be killed humanly should you meet the criteria.

 

For decades you couldn't shoot ringneck parakeet, invasive but illegal to shoot until about 5 years ago.

 

Without going to in-depth you actually have to use approved crayfish traps, even a mouse trap has to meet approval to minimise suffering, spring strength etc.

 

Crayfish traps also need your license number on a ID tag.

oljSignal crayfish are a real threat to the native wildlife around rivers/riverbanks. Not only should you have killed it - it is illegal to return them. Kill as many as you can - the problems they cause are many and varied...bad, bad news...and nigh on impossible to remove.

Wouldn't that also apply to the mink ?.
