WMN Letters: Intervention needed - thanks to intervention
Intervention needed – thanks to intervention
In a letter on Thursday, September 12, one of your writers stated that man’s interference with nature ends in failure. I believe the lady was referring to the badger cull.
This cull is necessary because of a previous government’s failed intervention in nature, when it made badgers a protected species. This resulted in a massive increase in the badger population and the unregulated spread of disease among them, which has spread to cattle, with disastrous results. It has also led to a corresponding reduction in hedgehogs and ground-nesting birds, on which the badgers feed.
Prior to this intervention the farmers and landowners kept the badger numbers under control, thus reducing the spread of disease.

The answer to this problem, which will not be popular with a large number of people, is to repeal the Act and allow the farmers and landowners to manage their land without intervention as they are the custodians of the countryside.
