A fox’s right to privacy…

Posted By on May 2, 2010

The BBC have an article asking whether animals should have a right to privacy from being filmed. It’s a slightly interesting question, although if the animals don’t know they’re being filmed, are they actually going to care?

As far as Garden Fox Watch goes, we’re not filming or photographing the foxes other than when they are visible from the house or the main part of the garden anyway. One could argue that the foxes are trespassers and thus have given up any right to privacy anyhow! Or should the (deliberately-placed) hole under the shed be considered as an “attractive nuisance“?

I don’t think I’ll be needing to put up a notice about our use of CCTV, anyhow; foxes can’t read 😉
