ANIMAL welfare campaigners say they will boycott the Lake District after national park bosses pledged to go ahead with a controversial culling of Canada geese on Windermere.
Have your say
Its the tourists who need culling, not these harmless creatures, they ought to be welcomed, quite an attraction they are too. They've made an effort, coming all the way from Canada and overcoming all types of natural challenges to be here amongst us, oh, come on man, give them a chance !!
As a regular visitor to the Lakes, I have to admit I have never notices there being too many birds so I don't really see a need for the cull. Then again, i'm largely uneducated on the matter so i'm not really in the best position to give a well balanced opinion. However, what I do know is this: All you people who claim they will boycott the Lakes...No you won't
If these birds are culled, I will definitely boycott the Lakes, and as a PCV driver, I will refuse to transport any party to any Lake resort.
