Letting Nature Take Its Course

I like this idea:

Eight terriers kill record 700 rodents in just seven hours – after desperate farmer called in handlers in bid to fix vermin crisis once and for all

Talk about creating a service to address a need:

The terriers are trained to kill vermin and are managed by the rat group, who travel around the region to clear farms of unsightly vermin.
Ed Cook, 34, manages the service and said the Suffolk and Norfolk Rat Pack are dedicated to promoting traditional hunting methods.

Now, if we can only create such a group Over Here to see off the vermin who infest the Government Swamp, Social Democrat party, United Nations and other such foul institutions, the world would be a better place.


  1. Not only were these dogs TRAINED to kill rats, they’ve been BRED to do so over hundreds or thousands of years. One pet peeve I have is people who get dogs and don’t know the breed. I was fishing at a local pond one day and a young lady with a Black Lab came by, the dog went into the lake after some ducks. She pulled him out and said “He always wants to go in the water, I don’t understand why!” I replied “He’s a Labrador Retriever, going into water to retrieve ducks is what he was bred to do.”

    Years ago I read a news story about a neighborhood that was being terrorized by a raccoon, getting into trash, killing cats and small dogs, etc. The late and much lamented Jeff Cooper opined “Seems like a job for a ten year old boy with a .22. That one right there will do.”

    Tom’s River, NJ (where my brother-in-law and sister-in-law live) has been beset by wild turkeys attacking people. I wanted to make a trip there before Thanksgiving, but Mrs D said I’d likely get in trouble, being NJ and all.
