    Thanks for the explanation Michael, Yes, it's completely bonkers, we interfere in nature, then, we interfere a bit more...and then wonder why it all goes horribly wrong! (Report)Reply

    Apologies, Rusty. A spot of spoonerism crept in. As it does. Well-boiled icicles, raffia mats, the drain brain, that sort of thing. I've reached the ambling rage. (Report)Reply

    Sorry about that, Dusty. It's a very considered comment on the way that the thoughtless overprotection of one species may harm another. The guy thought that dogpiss harmed trees; and drowned trying to save a native frog from an illegally imported bullfrog. I almost wept writing it. (Report)Reply
