It’s not the dassies’ fault
In response to the letter writer, “Sick of dassies”, have you considered that the dassies were here first and that their living space has been encroached upon for many years, forcing a different lifestyle on them.
If you love nature so much it is beyond me how you could then kill it. No doubt you are leaving that job to someone else.
I have until recently lived close enough to have dassies in my garden, but never felt the need to kill them.
I love nature. As humans we have taken much natural space from the original occupants.
