  1. This is not a Spanish problem, it’s a species problem.

    I remember being out picking wild watercress behind Alcudia and seeing two hunters ( i can think of more appropriate descriptions but they would be deleted) killing little songbirds.

    As there were no crops being grown that they were eating there was no rational reason to kill them.

    I approached one of these sub-humans and said it was lucky for them that I had no weapons otherwise I would exterminate them as vermin. Even though this piece of crap had the gun he was scared and walked away from me very carefully and kept his gun pointing in my direction.

    Almost invariably these scum are male (not men) and would run away if they had to face a gun themselves.

    There are rangers who will cull a species for it’s own good I am not referring to them.

  2. If the bit about “71 rare birds” is really true, I sincerely hope that the offender gets the maximum sentence available to the judge. 71 birds is bad enough. 71 rare birds is despicable.
