    I was chatting to a commercial vermin operator last week and he showed me a communication from his head office advising that the EU intend putting a block on the haemoragic type Rat poisons, ie. Tomcat , and replacing this with a much less effective substance, also on this communication, was a proposal that the mole was on the “list of endangered species” and moves were afoot to affording the creature protected status. Any truth in this, or is it merely on someones “wish list”?
