Mccartney's Shooting Ban 'Damaging'
Local surveyors in East Sussex have criticised the former beatle because the hunting embargo is allowing local pests - the wild boar - to cause chaos to the farming environment.
The reports states: "They (wild boar) are predominant in the area and cause a considerable amount of damage uprooting pasture, damaging trees, young and old, and fences.
"Much of the woodland has been fenced in to keep the wild boar out as the farm has adopted a no shooting or hunting policy.
"The wild boar disturb the soil which aggravates the weeds, dock, thistles and nettle problem."
