Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

Were you red squirrels in former lives? Have a heart trapping would be so much sweeter. Not quite so MANLY however.

Whitedog - you are so very American smile

Your cats enjoy eating squirrel - dogs would too, I guess. Why would eating squirrel be disturbing? Its really no different form eating rabbit.

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

Yes, why stop there. There are people in Vietnam who keep pigs as pets and eat dogs.
And there are people in Burma who roast alive and eat dying relatives as a final act of devotion.

We all have a different limit. But I can’t see why you would be against Squirrel?
Squirrels aren’t people, they aren’t carnivores, and they don’t feed on carrion or ****. They are just an edible animal, whose diet mainly consists of nuts and seeds.
If their numbers didn’t need to be controlled I wouldn’t have problems with Squirrels being farmed for their meat.
But because their numbers are high and they are being culled by the government here, what is the problem with the meat being eaten instead of thrown away?

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

Bloody hell, why would faece$ be a banned word?
People may say of $hit as a swear word, but who has ever said oh faece$?
Faece$ is not nor has it ever been a swear word. No one has ever used it as a swear word, it is one of the very few words in the English languages that can not be used as a swear in any context.
People don’t say your breath smells of faece$.
Because that swear remover has deleted it everyone is going to think I write $hit instead of Faece$ when I clearly didn’t.
People are going to think I use language like that when I clearly don’t.
Faece$ is about the least rude word for ****$. It is a technical, scientific term not an insult.

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

I won't eat rabbit either.

How about eating some of your beloved red squirrels then.

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

I would. Before 1970 you could get licences to hunt them. Did I hunt them before it became illegal?
No I didn’t, because I wasn’t born.
Would I hunt Reds if their numbers become high enough to sustain it?
Yes, more so if it becomes legal.
Hunting has nothing to do with hate. Wolfs don’t hate deer and foxes don’t hate rabbits. They are just feeding themselves. And when humans remove predators from food chains, or introduce animals in to countries without predators to control their numbers, humans have to take the place of the predator.
Humans in the 1930s introduced greys in to the UK. It took over 70 years for Humans to start trying to undo this mess.

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

And humans introduced carp to the rivers and lakes of Australia resulting in the once clear lagoons, as my dad used to talk of, to pools of red earthy water...the carps stir up the river/lake/lagoon beds...

And humans introduced cats to Australia in the hope that they might combat the mice epidemic (which probably was caused by mice escaping from humans' ships) but now the cats are attacking and threatening indigenous species as well...

And what about the minks that have escaped from labs and elsewhere? They're making a right old world for themselves along our riverbanks threatening our indigenous species...

And as for the plant kingdom...well humans have b******d that up also...

Rant rant rant...don't get me started...

Re: Paul Parker describes himself as a conservationist.

Just don't like the sound of such relish with regard to killing innocent people. But my passion is just as obscuring. Trying to get it right.
