i imagine Chris Packham is a rabid left wing loon on most other issues, but he does a lot of good work for animals

"Chris Packham is a rabid left wing loon"

That's my impression too.

It is gross and a plant based diet is the way forward

but Australia has a massive problem with wild goats and massive round ups are needed to cull them in the millions each year then end up in pet food

Everyone on island gets meat it’s not sold

thats the point even those doing the culling saying majority of the meat is contaminated and cant be eaten but they carry on with it because its a tradition

Has anyone watched a fish die? It's not very pleasant and countless millions die that way every year. Yet humans eat fish without even thinking about it, just happy to eat most of them.
It's all part of the food chain and the dolphin cull was probably part of it, now a tradition just like slaughtering sheep or oxen with a knife for certain religious festivals. I didn't see the outrage over that.

What a bout?

Seems rather selective to me. I don't approve of it anymore than I approve of some other horrors humans do in the name of tradition, so why is this highlighted  by Brussels Broadcasting and not a peep about some others? There was an orgy of slaughtering in July as I remember, not even mentioned on the Beeb although many more sentient animals died in certain parts than happened in the Faroes.
