Is it true that in the recent past, the policy was to isolate and fatten tb animals and ensure the meat was cooked?
Question. Is tb transmissible by close ie nose contact of animals confined indoors?
Is it possibly easier to transmit tb from nose to nose than from badger to cow ?

How do other nationalities deal with this problem?
A very large indoor cattle unit is under planning consideration.

Hooking fish causes pain and struggle. However, without the human rod and line exploiter there would be no fish to observe.

1)Anglers do protect water quality and value the fish as sport.
2)Non anglers are in the majority. So far, majority activity has produced atrocity after atrocity in the water world, either by careless ignorant pollution of rivers, or , at sea, by evil wastage of by-catch , over-fishing, etc.
At least, the angler`s fish as a species has a protected environment.
Basically, the human race has made enormous inroads into this planet`s resources, and every remaining species or natural element of landscape will have to be valued and either exploited or adopted by an interest group. It is the way we are. There are worse cruelties than a few persons hooking individual fish . Let us deal with these cruelties and abuses first.
