Who are the killers? Conservation Organisations

Conservation organisations are killing wildlife on a daily basis to protect their own interests. These interests are in many cases designed to fund their existence through donations and grants by exploiting the rarity of species and they have no hesitation in killing members of other species that get in the way of their chosen agendas.

These organisations regard certain wildlife species as obstructive to their aims and want rid of them. Terms such as "non-native" and "alien" are used as propaganda tools to persuade the general public to accept the killing without undue concern. This age old trick is nothing new and has been used by tyrannical regimes for centuries to alienate ethnic minorities from indigenous members in human populations. Pre-war Germany, Kosovo, the Sudan and not least Iraq, are all examples of similar intolerance.

Deer and feral goats are killed to protect trees; foxes and crows to protect ground nesting birds; ruddy ducks to stop them mating with white-headed ducks. Toxic weed-killers are frequently used that reduce populations of beneficial insects, birds and small mammals, by destroying vegetation they depend on for their food and shelter.

Other animals and birds killed in similar circumstances include rabbits, squirrels, cats, geese, magpies etc. There is no mercy in their quest to control nature.

In many cases the conservation organisations claim that the populations of these unfortunate animals and birds are "unsustainable"; a favourite word with little or no quantifiable meaning. Indeed, if they are unsustainable how did they get here in the first place? All populations adjust in accordance with their habitat and are only "unsustainable" in the eyes of those who wish to deprive them of their living space for selfish reasons.

When challenged and asked if they kill wildlife, conservationists provide well thought out euphemistic responses, using words and phrases such as "management", "control", "intervention", "difficult choices", "hard decisions" and "last resort". Their ingenuity knows no bounds - a recent addition is the "thinning out" of deer. All mean killing!

These evasive responses are specifically designed to lessen the impact of the brutality of killing wildlife. Why else would they use them?

Think about it!

If they were proud of what they do they wouldn't try to hide it.

"There will come a day when such men as myself will view the slaughter of innocent creatures as horrible a crime as the murder of his fellow man - Our task must to be free ourselves' by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty"
