John Bryant’s new book is an attack on the pest control industry and exposes the dreadful suffering, caused by traps and lethal poisons, of both target and non-target wild animals and birds. Recent television programmes have revealed the ignorance, cruelty and even criminal practices of the pest control industry.
John shows how by taking compassionate and intelligent measures of environmental management and by learning all we can about these creatures, we can reduce or eliminate problems caused by so-called ‘pests’, such as rats, mice, squirrels, foxes, pigeons, moles, deer, etc. without any harm to them. The book contains a chapter devoted to each type of animal.
