According to this article the public will soon be able to shoot parakeets. The birds are due to be added to an updated list of pests meaning that people will be able to kill them on their own property without a licence. The parakeets have become something of a pest in parts of the UK and have been blamed for wrecking fruit crops and threatening the nesting sites of native birds. A total of 63 species will be added to the list of alien pests in April, these include the European eagle owl, Chinese water deer the wild boar and some plants such as the rhododendron.
