That seems to be the thing to do these days doesn't it? Was driving back from Flynns walk today listening to radio 4 and a programme was on talking about the Red Buzzard and Peregrine Falcon taking too much of the Grouse in the Northern parts of England. Taking too much of THEIR food from hunters who want to shoot them FOR SPORT! What to do, possibly a limited cull! In the North of England we apparently have 100 times more Grouse than in other parts of Europe - but that still isn't enough for the hunters! It wasn't too many years ago that the Peregrine Falcon was re introduced in Scotland as they were on the verge of extinction and the nests protected as a few pairs had bred. Loads of news articles showing how pleased everyone was with the babies fledging. Pretty short lived that celebration eh? Badgers too were protected - at least the barbaric intended cull has been postponed until next year, lets hope it doesn't go ahead as scientists have a good argument against it. At least this wasn't planned because a f***ing huntsman wouldn't have the pleasure of a shoot and was cattle related re TB. Still ridiculous anyway. The wolf is being hunted to near extinction for the sake of the huntsman's gun because it too is eating too much 'game' - 'game' which is it's natural right to eat! Why oh why do people think they have a right to hunt? I could understand it if it was the only way to find food but for us humans it isn't - for the predators however it is. With so many rabbits out there to shoot (I couldn't) why pick on endangered species? Rabbits were never indigenous to the UK, some tw*t decided it would be a good idea to bring them over and introduce them (another great idea by man) and they are a total pest in many respects, spread like wildfire by prolific breeding - so why not shoot them? What kind of people have the need to go and shoot creatures to take home to eat or as trophies? Isn't the local supermarket well enough stocked? Makes me sick how selfish man has become, ruining this planet for everything bar him. To my three kids who say they don't want children in this one sided world I say thank you, I too don't want grand children to co inhabit with the selfishness of man kind. The planet will be shot itself anyway! What a sh*t world we live in and it won't get any better because so many people don't see any wrong in killing creatures for pleasure! Rant over but find it all so very sad!
