I'm response to Jim Barrington's blog post that I guest wrote. A privilege to be hosted by him.
Further would like to re interate the point. Rats are sentient animals with some pretty high cognitive abilities. Poor understanding has lead to decades of over poison use in the built environment . Although poision does have a small place to play to managing rats and mice. It is not the wholesale approach we have now.
The league against cruel sports along with Peta fail to protect the rats because they don't fit into the visuals that keep their funds coming in. It's what every Disney seems to promote they should protect.
A poison free world is something we should aim for. Hunting with dogs along with sport is part of this solution.
