Otter Petition

The Barbel Society have launched a government petition calling for the control of the otter.

It is for the control, and hence research of the otter. It has NOTHING to do with the word ‘cull’. Read the wording. Therefore, every angler can sign this petition with a clear conscience!

This is a chance for all of us to do something positive.
