OPINION: The Hound would be a rich canine if he got a dollar for every time he's heard multi-national, fundraising organisation Greenpeace claim the answer to NZ's climate change challenge is to ban synthetic fertiliser.
The group has demanded that mice currently plaguing rural parts of Australia not be killed in the name of “human supremacy”.
PETA spokesperson Aleesha Naxakis told a media outlet that the “bright, curious animals are just looking for food to survive” and that “they shouldn’t be robbed of that right because of the dangerous notion of human supremacy”.
Naxakis suggested instead of poisoning the “innocent” rodents, farmers should set up humane traps to gently catch and release the mice unharmed.
However, Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack pretty much nailed it when he told media the “real rats” in this plague are the “people who come out with bloody stupid ideas like this”.
