Should the Taoiseach order the immediate culling of our Deer and Badger populations by the Defence Forces?

Ireland has been running an Bovine TB Eradication Program since 1954. At this stage millions of Bovines have been culled at enormous direct and indirect expense. We are no nearer eradication of this scourge.

In the last number of days it was necessary for elite troops to stop 5 mad bovines escaping into the wild by shooting them and contaminating other animals. A Clear and Present Danger must now be deemed to exist from this disease scourge.

Many thousands of Deer and Badgers continue to wander from farm to farm spreading the disease. The compelling logic now that the army moved in to contain the threat from5 bovines must be that Deer and Badger Populations are wiped out entirely.

The cumulative threat to Irish Beef exports arising from the falling value of Sterling, the Tariff Threat, and the ongoing risk for Bovine TB now begs that the Government move to deal with one since it cannot do much about the other threats to the Beef Industry.

The last thing Irish Farming needs is to be dragged down by Bovine TB.

Is Ireland the only country to have this problem

- or is it endemic in Europe?

We would have a replay.

Collins calls his men out on it, telling them that bullets don't grow on trees and that they did well, but go easy on the riddlin'."

I suppose ,given that our army boys have 'cried off' a few recent UN missions , killing harmless critters might give them something to do of an afternoon. In case they get a bit demented from the total pointlessness of their chosen occupation..
