Ifor Wynn Evans, chairman and secretary: “We’re meeting on 19 February. I’m going to carry on as legally as I can — probably with two hounds. The main thing is that people don’t get rid of their hounds.

“My biggest landowner is the Forestry Commission, but there are sufficient small areas in which I can do what the ferret people used to do. We have some areas that I have yet to seek permission for from the Countryside Council of Wales.

“The season finishes at the end of March, but I doubt we’ll be continuing until then. But mark my words: in two years there will be a major problem with the fox population.”
