THE ACCLIMATISATION SOCIETY AND THEIR PETS.
To THE EdITOK. Sir, —I notice in your columns that the 'Acclimatisation Society are trying to bring another peat into the country—namely, weasles. I think the members of the Society can have no interest whatever in
the country or they would ml be trying to fetch all the vermin into the country hat they can. I think some *teps sivm’.d be taken to stop this kind of thing in time, and not leave it till it is almostgjtoo late, and then have to form clubs to destroy the pests which have bosm introduced. That all takes money. The small birds clubs are already a tax on the farmer. If there are many more clubs it will take all the farmers can make to keep them up. Hoping I am not taking up too much space in your valuable paper, I am, &c., John Bark. Spring Side Farm, Waterton, July 16, 1881.
