The squirrels clinch it

At last – an argument that decides the grand debate as to whether the UK should Leave the European Union or Remain a member. And it’s a decisive vote in favour of remaining.

As a result of the Invasive Alien Species Order 2019, a new EU regulation, that is due to come into force on 28 March, all rescue centres and veterinary surgeons in the UK will be required to euthanise animals bought to them.

Anyone who finds a grey squirrel, muntjac deer or other ‘alien species’ and takes it to a centre will either be turned away, or the animal will be euthanised, no matter how healthy it is.
