Default Demonising the hedgehog!

The SNH Nazi CONservationists who are perpetrating the extermination of the
Uist hedgehogs have demonised them by calling them aliens and saying they are
responsible for the decline in waders, which the both RSPB and locals wish to
exploit for tourism.

Will this lead to the greedy Hebrideans killing hedgehogs on sight?

These hedgehogs need some form of protection from both the Nazis and
the those who benefit from the exploitation of waders.

The message
from "The Devil's Advocate"
contains these words:

I symathise with your point of view but 'Nazis' is a bit over the top don't
you think


I sympathise with the waders. Hedgehogs in the wrong place are pests,
and the Outer Hebrides is the wrong place.

So they are wrong and only you are right.
There are more important things in this world to worry about than the alien
population of Uist.

I sympathise with the waders. Hedgehogs in the wrong place are pests,
and the Outer Hebrides is the wrong place.


Which is why the Hedgehog Welfare Charities are trying to remove them. It is
SNH's insistence on killing the hedgehogs they capture, rather than handing
them over for relocation, which is the root of the problem.

I'm quite in sympathy with that aim, though that in itself presents
welfare (and possibly fatal) problems for the urchins.

Organisations like St Tiggywinkles and the BHPT are not in the business of
deliberate or reckless torture of hedgehogs, and have many years practical
experience in the rehabilitation and release of hedgehogs. If they feel the
translocation project is feasible, and their membership and the public is
prepared to fund it, I see no good reason why SNH should deny them the
opportunity.

The Uist Wader Group's recommendation was that there should have been a
pilot 'official' translocation scheme this year, to test survival of
translocated specimens, but, for some unknown reason, SNH decided to avoid
testing their pessimistic theories, and to press on with killing all the
animals they captured.
