Sir, - We, the "intelligent species on earth", who are polluting our planet with exhaust gases, burning fossil fuels and using our rubbish as landfill, have decided that the one responsible - if our bureaucrats are to be believed - is "Daisy the Cow". She is going to get it in the neck.
Surely we have not yet reached the stage where the passing of wind attracts the death penalty. - Yours, etc.
