In the Weekend section was an account of a journalist accompanying a stalker on the culling of a roe doe. There was a regurgitation of the sadness of death tempered by the necessity for control, as seen in articles elsewhere.
The core of this story, however, was the proclaimed need for a 50% annual cull based on a UEA report in The Journal of Wildlife Management in 2013. I believe Dr Paul Dorman, the author of the report later said this figure was taken out of context.
Anyway, the journalist, true to his craft, has now implanted on the readership, an immutable cull target. I merely wonder how this may influence the public perception of stalking.
