The prevalent fall back position in Western society seems to be that if there’s a problem then kill it, remove it, bulldoze it into oblivion.There still seems to be a belief in the concept of a Final Solution.
I was kind of glad to read this article http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/oct/13/badger-cull-mindless
This is a smoke fired ceramic sculpture of ‘Maggot’ a friendly little Badger who sometimes visits my garden. I find it hard to believe that the government is paying Rambo to creep around in forests and fields at night to shoot her. Surely it would be simpler to stop raising cattle in factory farms and instead allow them access to fresh air and natural food and so improve their health and resistance to TB? Or is it just that scientists are again trying to dominate Mother Nature with their guns and poisons?
