brilliant post ruup4it well done, i used to shoot for a farmer, pidgeons crows and vermin, the farmer used to keep pigs, and when the odd one died he used to take them onto a pile and burnt them, well the vermin that used to gather round the carcasses were massive never have and never want to see rats that big again and they were fearless, i hate the things, when i go now i take a fen trap with me and set it out the way and try to kill a few off :lol:

having seen in the papers about the rower who died recently this got me thinking with regard to us anglers. how many of us take precautions with regards to any cuts on our hands or when eating food.

ive been out and got myself one of those little bottles of hand sanatiser and now keep it in my fishing bag. might be worth thinking about.

Pigeons also carry leptospirosis--- just a heads up as I didn't see them mentioned in the post

Psitacossis is more of a concern from pigeons, although pigeons are pretty scarce everywhere that I fish so I'm not overly concerned :wink:

 

P.S. Good shout though. It's always good to keep the risks of wildlife, for want of a better expression :wink: , at the forefront of peoples thoughts.

Just to give you the full picture.

Leptospirosis is transmitted by the urine of an infected animal and is contagious as long as the urine is still moist. Although Leptospira has been detected in reptiles and birds, only mammals are able to transmit the bacteria to humans and other animals. Rats, mice, and moles are important primary hosts—but a wide range of other mammals including dogs, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, cows, sheep and certain marine mammals carry and transmit the disease as secondary hosts. :shock: :shock:

 

enjoy your fishing folks :lol: :lol:
