Tesco favours wildlife

Tesco has had a tough time of it since teaming up with the RSPB earlier this year.  But at least they have discovered wildlife including the mice that have ‘infested‘ their Covent Garden store causing it to close.  It is expected to reopen as an RSPB nature reserve very soon.

London tube stations are just about the only places I ever see house mice – I should make a note of which ones seem to have them and which do not.  Waterloo and Oxford Circus are supposed to be good mouse-spotting sites.  Where have you seen them?

    Hope farm contaminated with rat poison. Here is a link to why I think it is only a matter of time that we find this poison in our food stuffs [or may be it already is!!] - http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-03-23-poison-pet-food_N.htm
    The sooner we stop using poison the better. If in doubt, get a cat!!

    Vauxhall tube station......but also the passage to Vauxhall railway station, the platform, and tracks. The latter disappeared at the same time as the wonderful graffitti, so I wondered whether there was a connection.

    I have given up complaining about the rats in the car park at Tesco's Southampton Road store in Salisbury. They are unusually bold, scavenging for food under the boundary hedges in broad daylight. In Tesco's defence, the food they seek is probably discarded from cars by the starving customers who can't wait to get home before they eat, having queued to get out for so long in the famous Southampton Road gridlock system - which is fast becoming one of Salisbury's main tourist attractions. Shopping at Tesco is also becoming quite challenging - a course in Boolean algebra is essential to decide on which BOGOF or BTFTPOT is the best value.

    As for mice - Mark might see more of them if he spent more time looking down, rather than up :-)

    Sadly John cats cannot get at the mice and rats on farms,think no alternative to poisons and if used correctly cannot see why they should get in food.
