Sir: I note claims made campaigners for "animal rights" that mink are really not so bad.

When I was a boy, one could walk along the banks of the river Wye and see dozens of moorhens within the space of a mile. A few years ago it was reported that there were no moorhens on the Wye from Rhayader to Chepstow, because of killing by mink. Now we have a few moorhens back because of a concerted effort to kill the mink.
