Bet­ter not to ex­cite the bunny hug­gers

Talk of the Town - - Opinion - DER­RICK FEL­LOWS

In his let­ter “Dassie de­bate a real prob­lem”, of Septem­ber 27, “Prag­matic Bi­ol­o­gist” refers to those who are con­cerned about the wel­fare of an­i­mals as “eco­log­i­cally un­e­d­u­cated bunny hug­gers”.

Well, were it not for “bunny hug­gers”, we would still have dog fights, bull bait­ing, fox hunt­ing and all the other blood sports which the de­praved and per­verted de­lighted in.

It would be best if the “bunny hug­gers” and the “bunny hun­ters” joined forces to find a hu­mane so­lu­tion to this prob­lem.

How­ever, I urge “Prag­matic Bi­ol­o­gist” to tem­per his lan­guage, or I shall have to in­dulge in a bit of blood sport of my own; and set my cat upon him.
