From Panda to Mink

Never in my wildest dreams when I got elected as a Labour Councillor almost 13 years ago did I think I would be lobbying colleagues about the control of Mink. Well I am now, today's meeting of the Council's TIE Committee will consider a report on this very issue. It's an interesting read and can be found on this link . As it turns out, I have received a few reports of Mink taking hens and other animals in and around the Water of Leith / Bavelaw Burn at Balerno. In short, the report says "It's a big problem, it would be very expensive to solve it, note the report and move on."
