The bounty was a shilling (that's 5p for the youngsters).  There used to be 
an FC Regional Headquarters in Beckenham (South London) and I remember the 
face of the receptionist when I handed over two quids worth!

When I was a lad we'd get a bounty on their tails & shoot them with 
air-rifles;  if I'm spared I might see their eradication from UK in my 
lifetime - which would be a huge step forward for forestry and woodland 
management in UK; at the moment, woodland management for new broadleaf 
woodland is an oxymoron given what happens as the trees reach pole-stage

Yippee!
