They can't do that, they can recommend but not stipulate.

This sort of thing pisses me right off. Can you tell?

Unless your garden is in the middle of nowhere with no neighbours don't even consider using ANY sort of firearm/shotgun/air weapon to shoot a fox !! Live catch in a trap & remove and dispatch humanely .
You'll create a right $h1tstorm if you wound the thing and anybody sees you never mind the legal implications of discharging any sort of weapon near a road or human habitation............

to be fair, the letter they wrote me was worded as a recommendation. lancs police are one of the better licencing authorities and are really helpful.
