Animal rights

Thoughts from Northumberland.

I’ve come to the conclusion that wild animals have just as much right to live around us as a new neighbour moving into the area. We humans are animals, too, and are supposed to be just as much a part of nature as them. You can learn a lot about wild animals just by observing — I certainly learned a lot about foxes last summer. Sometimes we have to make concessions — my brother and sister-in-law found out foxes relish corn on the cob and had to install one more layer of electric fence around the patch. My guineas couldn’t run freely because of the foxes and had to have extra attention paid to the fence around their outdoor run. For cats owners and coyotes — it’s a hard call to know what to do, but tiger feces sounded like a good idea.
