We think nothing of poisoning rats. Why is that deemed to be ok?
Subjectivity clouds the issue. The human mind is a strange beast indeed.

Well if you take that view point no should keep birds and no one should eat meat. Some creatures in my opinion need to be killed so we can survive and the brown rat does not belong in the UK however the black rat is indigenous to the UK.

Matt,
That an unusual statement coming from a falconer.

Good point on the brown Rat Derek.

But in answer to your comment, we poison Rats and the equivalent because firstly they carry so many diseases, like viles which can be fatal to us, fleas that carry all sorts of plagues, they are very destructive to property's and the last time I looks they are classed as vermin. Birds of prey are not and protected, I rest my case.

You are indeed correct but I was more thinking on higher moral angle and the right or otherwise to life. It should be noted that rats will eat your eggs and chicks even when the parents are there so I believe if I see a rat near my birds it must be killed.

I think Matts point is that poison is not a nice way to kill any animal irrelevant of the reason....
