Top end fishos asked to avoid sensitive cultural ceremony by eating only fish food that contains ‘anti-cancer’ ingredients’
A survey by the UK’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) shows that the average white-tailed deer spends around nine weeks a year with a feeding tube attached to their neck in order to produce a tasty meal which is fed to them for about 20 minutes.
These ‘anti-cancer’ diets are the same as those used by the UK Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to help cull the deer population following research suggesting their eating behaviour may be contributing to the increasing numbers of deer on the roads.
The findings prompted two senior conservationists to call on the government to make a concerted public campaign against the practice in the hope it could help save the deer species.
The two conservationists, who are both members of the Scottish National Party (SNP), are calling for more evidence that anti-cancer diets are the culprit and to encourage farmers, traders ajarvees.comnd car drivers to opt for conventional feed over anti-cancer feeds which can affect other deer species.
They called on the Department of Environment to look into the claims from the white-tailed deer research, as well as other species used by the RSPB.
A recent survey by the organisation found that about 30 per cent of the white-tailed deer eat a white-tail fish meal that contains anti-cancer anti-salicylic compounds – ingredients with high levels of chemical-based herbicides that are often not allowed into Britain.
They said: «Our results reveal that while the European research was conducted in France, the UK government and DEFRA have no plans to stop the anti-cancer feeds from the EU’s feed guidelines from being added to the diets of white-tailed deer in Scotland.
«Our concerns about what is actually happening have recently led to the launch of a바카라사이트 coordinated RSPB campaign by the Scottish National Party (SNP) calling on the Department for Enviro바카라nment to take urgent action to stop the feed additives from being added to white-tailed deer feeds in Scotland.»
Dr Andrew Cawley, president of the Scottish Veterinary Research Council, said: «We have been working closely with the RSPB on a campaign of conservation to stop this practice going ahead but the public are suffering.
«We now need to work with the government to secure greater clarity from DEFRA about what anti-cancer feeds are currently available and why they are being used.
