Re: Grey squirrels cute animals or vermin? People's opinions and policy and law.
It is always a contentious issue when non-native species get culled. I was involved with wildlife rescue and it was never easy for our vet to have to euthanase a perfectly healthy animal because it was an introduced species. When I was called out to rescue things like Canada Geese and Black Swans, I was pleased that the vet would be the one to have to make the decision about what to do. Escaped or released pets like parakeets and terrapins fall into the alien species categories and can cause many problems for native creatures. The law is specific about non-native wildlife for very good reasons and we had to be very careful not to let our hearts rule our heads.
