Sir: Terence Blacker takes to task the perverts of Telford for their desire for "crush" videos of small animals being squashed (Comment, 4 August). Personally I go in for the participation rather than the spectator sport. Of recent weeks I have spent many perverted nights out with a flashlight crushing garden snails. I can report no sexual satisfaction, unless a muttered "I told you not to eat my peas!" counts for anything.

Elsewhere in The Independent there is a report on the amount of wildlife killed by domestic cats. Does anybody know of a way to train cats to kill snails?
