Highland Cattle
« on: March 08, 2019, 08:38:58 AM »
Not sure if folk are aware but the Highland Cattle that roam up on the moor near Baslow and Curbar will soon be gone for good. The farmer who owns them has had to sell them after he was forced to take them off the moor following one complaint to the Health & Safety Executive from one walker who claimed he felt in danger from them. Guy has started a petition against the decision and in just over 24hrs its gone past 7000 signatures from folk who agree that its a stupid decision.

These great animals have been up there for years without issue and one clown means we wont get to share this great part of the countryside with them.

 Signed and shared!

I'd heard about this previously, how stupid that one person felt threatened - don't walk through the field then! Any cattle can suddenly rush at people walking through a field, not just Highland cattle. Does that mean all cattle should be removed from fields?

Another case of a nanny state in my opinion.

Article on BBC News in the local derbyshire section. Appears it was a "visitor" to the area that made the complaint after cattle with calves approached his dog that was on a lead and they felt unsafe. To make things worse it would appear that pregnant cattle have been able to be sold but other cattle will be slaughtered because of this. Real sad outcome for these great looking creatures.

I'm assuming the person concerned, when making the complaint, has left their details with the "Careful you'll catch your pinky" brigade.

Whoever it is, if say Radio Derby can find out where they come from and have them "Named and shamed" on their local radio station and have a two station phone in with that person taking questions and make the people of that area aware it's happening. At the moment he or she is just a faceless moaner, if they feel aggrieved then lets hear their side instead of just complaining to a few namby pamby bureaucrats.

this is typical of townfolk and city people and their view of the countryside, they think it is there just to look pretty and allow them a place to wander around at will, my view is if they feel threatened in a place THEN STAY AT HOME YOU MORONS.
the countryside does look pretty but as has been proved in the past can be an unforgiving place to idiots, i refer of course to peole getting lost and caught up in bad weather conditions without the correct clothing, lettting their dogs run amock and to worry the sheep then complaing when a farmer comes along and blows its bloody head off, also leaving marked tracks and falling down old mine shafts to name a few things that can befall the idioticly unprepared or unwary.
i myself was dragged up in the capitol of the peak district in the sixties and vividly remember the stench of the foot and mouth bonfires, being trapped in our homes for days by huge snow drifts and unable to get fresh milk and bread because you could not get to the shops, i also remember for days being escorted to school in groups with an armed escort because a wild animal was attacking sheep and cattle and everybody thought it was an escaped lion or cougar and thought it may attack people (it turned out to be a wild dog) eventually it was caught in a trap and was shot, you can bet the decission to tell the farmer to get rid of his cattle was made by some pillock in a city office somewhere who has no idea of the countryside and believes it is just there for the middle classes to go to impress their friends at dinner parties by regaling their guest with "how clarrisa went in to a cave and fell and broke her leg and the cave rescue, mountain rescue and a heilcopter had to be called out to to save them" you do not have cattle in starbucks or waitrose, so go there and stay the hell out of the cattles place ie the countryside you middle cass idiots.

We have some in our village on the nature reserve. I don't think people walk through the area they are but they always seem oblivious as we walk past - they don't seem to be challenging cattle at all. Some people should stick to the cities and towns >:(
