It was said that The Red Paper was "explosive" with what it revealed about foxes, jackals, coyotes and wolves in the UK.
The follow-up, in which case, is going to be described as "Bloody Hell! We hit an ammo dump!"
There has been one major revellation after another and all are accidental discoveries. Today I received a brief email from a certain establishment. Very casual, however. (lets keep with the military metaphors) I was handed a hand grenade with the pin missing.
Everything is coming together but as there is no funding it will take a while. There appears to be no interest in funding the work from any source and so, as usual, that means plodding on slowly.
And, yes, some of this is inseperable from the Exotic fauna work as well as the work looking at wolverine - yes,breakthroughs- and even the British wild cat (F silvestris) and Ican now state that these cats DID NOT become extinct when we were told -proveable.
This evening, unless I get another email, I am going to sit back and let my head stop spinning. This is British wildlife history but who cares?
