SNH wrong - shocker!

So, SNH got it wrong about the Uist hedgehogs when the said that they would never survive transportation to another location. Remember the furore when they were to be shot? Then given fatal injections?

Now, I don't hold the welfare of hedgehogs high in my priority list, and certainly not as high as the very excitable Ross Minnot of Advocates for Animals.

Just for clarification Advocates for Animals is nothing do do with representation in the higher courts for a killer dog, or a Niseach sheep selling crack at the fank, but appears to be an organisation which believes that animals have exactly the same rights as humans.

With rights come responsibilities, and until I can get an ASBO against next doors cat for shitting on my lawn, the balance is unfairly tilted.loonies for animals

according to Advocates for Animals, they stridently believe that, "DEMOCRACY means … giving EVERYONE a voice" which seems to involve allowing dogs to vote, according to the picture on their website (right). Sorry, but until Fido tidies up his own shit and pays Council Tax, he's not getting on the electoral register.

These are the self-righteous townies who want to stop the Gugas being taken; want to stop deer culls; and want to stop seal culls irrespective of the effect on humans.

Anthropomorphism is a horrible condition which results in well-meaning liberal vegetarians* thinking that a pig/sheep/fox is more important than the human who tends, nurtures, and then carefully eats the beast.

The 'trendies' who name (pet) animals and then refuse to eat them (after having them sent for slaughter) have their place. It's just not in the rural community. Friends are not kept in a paddock and fed grass (unless you are Cynthia Payne), they are herbivores who are staying for lunch. Your lunch.

Anyway. my point before I rambled was; if SNH got it wrong about the hedgehogs, who is to say they didn't get it wrong about the Lewis Peatlands and blocking the Ness-Tolsta road because the birds might suffer?

* I like vegetarians. Most of my favourite lunches are of beef or lamb.

That, Angus, is one of the most tenuous arguments I've seen yet on your blog.

Please expand the argument into something logical if you can, citing of course environmental and scientific references to support this astounding theory.

You used a bad word Angus, would you have said " And until I can get an ASBO against next doors cat for shitting on my lawn " if you were up for election? Is this the "Real Angus Nicolson " we are now reading about? I think we should be told, answer please, your friendly neighbourhood Tws. Cheery......

Be careful what you say, else you'll have lentil beans and possibly even sandals (made of hemp, not leather) thrown at your window...

We must share this planet with all life Angus. Once you use the word CULL you are just one SMALL step away from talking about human beings.

If we were in a court of law and I was brought in as a defence witness on your behalf over this blog Angus all I could say would be "Out of character with all the other blogs your honor".

Off to cull some coffee beans into a nice latte, while pondering your comments.

In order to ponder you must first have a mind.

I would try and explain but somehow I think it would be a waste of time.

We call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.

"A society can be judged by how it treats its most innocent members"

Not sure who said this, but were they only referring to people or did they include hedghogs, dogs, deer etc in this number? Maybe even cabinet members? Oh no, wait, innocent...

There is an old saying Alasdair, "there is always an exception to the rule." LOL.
