Sergeant Hall was remarkably progressive in his ideas particularly for a policeman. He understood it was necessary to raise the level of the debate.
Raise it? Raise it from the level of troublesome indigenous fauna, of vermin control, of eradication and slaughter; raise it to the level of animal husbandry.
And need I repeat radical, progressive thoughts of the time?
