Deer Culling

Postby whitevanman » Sun Mar 10, 2013 9:33 pm

With the recent story that deer should now be culled, this hot on the heels of the badger culling legislation, who or what as given our species the right to control and manage other species? Our species are also overpopulated in some places and it is our species that are actually destroying the world by altering habitats and (arguably) climate.

Culling on a massive scale is necessary just to keep the exploding deer population at its current level, they say.

Deer are said to be having a devastating effect on woodland, damaging farmers' crops, causing road accidents and threatening a danger to public safety in urban areas.

Deer strip woodland of wild flowers, brambles and shrubs, and disturb the ecology to the point that native birds are lost. The fact that nightingales are now so rare is largely blamed on deer.

Britain has a total of six deer species. Roe deer and red deer are the only two species native to the UK. Four others have been introduced from abroad since Norman times.

The most recent newcomers were the muntjac deer and the Chinese water deer, which became established in the wild in the 1920s.

Full story

You could quite easily swap the word deer for human in this story, why is nothing being done to control the species that, in my opinion, will ultimately destroy our planet?

Don't worry Whitey, we're well on the way to geting rid of ourselves. The only thing that worries me is will we have wiped out all other life forms before we go?

Yes Whitey, you're right. We are the dictators who fail to see our own short comings.
