PRIME Minister David Cameron has sentenced hundreds of badgers to a painful death, with more to be slaughtered soon.

Not only that he has allowed hundreds of pairs of herring gulls and lesser black-backed seagulls to be culled.

The only thing these poor animals did wrong was to be born in a world that’s ruled by cruel humans. Future generations will never forgive our cruelty.

The earth doesn’t belong to man, man belongs to earth. This we know.

Man didn’t weave the web of life. He is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Mr D Fillingham, The Crossway, York.
