Hi all - from Sydney|
Referring to the text of the SA minister's justification for the culling programme, it is sad that whenever culling programmes are justified, the word "kill" is never used. Here we have "taking" - giving the impression that the birds are removed rather than killed. I suppose a slight nod towards reality is the use of "destruction" but again they avoid using the awful word which is what it is all about. I'm surprised they haven't yet adopted that famous euphenism "cleansing"!
The controls imposed of course depend totally on the will of the orchardists/farmers involved and who is there to see that they are not abused? Nobody.
One down again for the birds.
