Massacre

Once it's 'learnt' that hen runs are a source of food and 'entertainment', it will probaby start raiding others in the area.

Problem being is that it won't just kill one for food but get the 'blood lust' and slaughter the rest purely as its natural instincts kick in.

 

If there's one in your area, other poultry owners will probably start suffering as well

 

Sorry I can't advise on how to 'remove' the threat as I don't know what the relevant rules are if any.

 

Certainly it will continue to be a problem till dealt with.

Happened to someone I know recently too. Killed 10 or 11 birds. They set up a large joey trap, the ones that catch them alive, like a cage, stuffed it with fresh chicken fillets. Polecat went for them overnight, got stuck, so next morning it was shot with a 12 bore while still in the trap.

Thats the jobbie the OP needs, once in the trap, just drown it still in the trap.

Although I appreciate they are vermin in being a problem to chicken owners. I think it is a bit sad really when such things are deemed worthy of killing without any bother at all.

 

Are there not relatively cheap ways of dealing with the problem without resorting to killing them?

 

Can you not make the chickens less tasty?

We dont have polecats or weasel etc on the island, just wild ferret, ldv have you ever tried to have a reasonable discussion with a wild ferret ?.

No, diplamitic relations has always proven friutless, so you always have to take the american option/route.
