100,000 badgers have already been cruelly snared and killed in Ireland as part of a failed and discredited “TB Eradication” scheme.

Now, there are calls for deer to be similarly destroyed.

An Irish Independent report this week reveals that the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Association is demanding that wild deer be urgently killed.

Claiming that the deer are responsible for spreading TB to cows in the dairy industry, ICMSA president John Comer is demanding “really serious control of the wild deer population.”

Previously, the ICMSA declared its support for the bloodsport of carted deer hunting. In 2010, ICABS expressed disgust to the association after its then president referred to carted deerhunting as a “humane country activity” and claimed that the ban on the Ward Union is “unwanted, uncalled for, unfair and unprecedented in terms of the bias it represents against traditional country pursuits”.
