Hi,<br><br>
you may have heard the British and Spanish government are planning a mass slaughter/'cull', of the beautiful blue beaked ruddy duck. PLEASE Sign the petition against this barbaric proposal.<br><br>
Thankyou<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.PetitionOnline.com/blu1duck/petition.html" target="_blank">http://www.PetitionOnline.com/blu1duck/petition.html</a><br><br><br><br>

SAVE THE RUDDY DUCKS<br><br><br><br>
The government is planning a mass cull of the blue beaked Ruddy duck. The ruddy duck, named after its<br><br>
chestnut plumage, was introduced to Spain, mates with the native Spanish white-headed duck, which is<br><br>
apparently becoming threatened due to cross breeding. The governments solution to this?: Mass murder.<br><br><br><br>
The 6,000 small fowl will be shot by government-paid marksmen because they breed 'too successfully.'<br><br>
According to the government, The mass slaughter will cost £5 million and last six years.<br><br><br><br>
Under pressure from the Spanish, the UK Government has already<br><br>
carried out a limited cull of 2,500 ducks in three regions.<br><br><br><br>
Their trial has been so successful the government now intends to widen<br><br>
the cull to kill the remaining 3,500 ducks that continue to live in Britain's<br><br>
lakes and reservoirs.<br><br><br><br>
The government are also talking about 'compulsory access' to the land of those who don't want anything to do<br><br>
with the cull, to get to the ducks.<br><br><br><br>
PLEASE sign this petition to help stop this outrageous mass slaughter. We need to show the government that we<br><br>
will not tolerate such barbaric measures, and put up with seeing our wildlife blasted. There are other ways to<br><br>
deal with this, and these beautiful birds shouldn't have to suffer, see each other suffer, slaughtered, for something<br><br>
man has caused in the first place.

hello drummeranimal,<br><br><br><br>
we appreciate your concern for the ruddy ducks; however, posting this message in every forum was unneccessary. as a moderator i am asking you to delete your posts in each forum except for the "activism and action alerts" forum.<br><br><br><br>
if you are unable to do so, administration will be happy to do it for you.<br><br><br><br>
in the future, posting topics in the appropriate forums, and not "spamming" the boards with identical posts, would be very much appreciated.<br><br><br><br>
thank you.<br><br><br><br>

I've signed the petition, I think it's a sick idea akin to ethic cleansing etc. If the ducks like each other enough to mate who cares what colour they are. Evolution in action.

Apology accepted.<br><br><br><br>
However, if you do it again, Lady Faile and Avalon will be dispatched to give you an atomic wedgie.<br><br><br><br>
(Note: Michael, please do attempt to spam your own board just to get the wedgie. Oh, and I'm supposed to inform you that you <b>must have your underwear on</b> to get a wedgie.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

I guess we're ruining the thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">
