Seasonal lamb

 

Sir, – As is becoming usual, The Irish Times has another fantastic picture on its front page (March 19th), courtesy of Laura Hutton.

The caption mentions that lambs are vulnerable during the first few months of every year. I have news: they are vulnerable for somewhat longer than that. There is a very high probability that the adorable creature in the photo will form the main constituent of a rack of lamb dish in the not-too-distant future.

– Yours, etc,
