RE the letter from Mrs Kay, RSPCA branch administrator, over the proposed badger cull (August 24). While supporting her aims, I am drawn to the last paragraph: “It will wipe out huge numbers of this much-loved species, including many animals which are healthy.”

I find this rich, coming from a spokesman of an organisation which deliberately killed a “much loved, healthy” deer it had been entrusted with.

I do hope we do not have the badger cull, but I’m not sure whether the RSPCA has enough “spirit” for the fight.
