In my opinion to prevent a lot of them of getting hunted and killed, more animal sanctuaries should be opened, humane, kind and professional of course. To insure the animals live a great long life. Also they would be able to educate a lot more people of wildlife and increase people’s interests in animals, and will therefore create a wider animal loving community which will help their welfare! But what’s your opinion?
As well as the badger cull… more recently they are now looking at a wild boar cull because humans and boars are clashing in a dramatic fashion apparently. The only person they interviewed about it said a boar had dug up his front lawn. Oh by-golly by-gum… call the executioner! Idiots ¬_¬ OH! and they are calling for a cull on deer as well…. Cause they are just swarming the place! ¬_¬ I fear I may not be able to find Boar and Deer onesies to wear when I go a protesting
I recently learned about badger culling in the UK… I was very distressed about this, because that is one of my favorite animals :'( anyway, it seemed to be because they were interfering with farming… They can transmit a disease to cows… Sigh… Poor cows and poor badgers, and poor humans who get sick from eating deceased cow flesh
If it was overpopulated, I think that maybe they could humanly catch them and neuter/spay them, then once it is made sure that they have recovered – release them. But I agree with @MysteryMalice, I don’t think that wildlife is overpopulated. Like she said, when was the last time that you saw hedgehogs or foxes. We need to save wildlife – not kill them!
Hold up? We’re overpopulated with wildlife? wtf? When was the last time any of us saw a badger or a fox just ambling by? I sure haven’t. The only foxes I’ve seen have been severely underweight and ill looking and I’ve never seen a badger that hasn’t been on the side of a dual carriage way dead.
Plus the last I heard was that most of British wildlife is under threat.
Usually the ‘overpopulation’ argument crops up when the toffs are all looking for a loophole to hunt.
