http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3674032/The-conviction-motorist-cheer-Tractor-driver-fined-190-trundling-slowly-queue-FIFTY-cars-trapped-him.html

Tractor driver fined £190 for trundling along so slowly a queue of FIFTY cars was trapped behind him
While understandably annoying being trapped behind a slow vehicle. The lack of consideration for the other goes both ways.

When going through a bottleneck (e.g. construction site) with my bike I ride on the sidewalk (provided there are no pedestrians) to keep traffic unhindered. However, cars never make room so I can drive off the sidewalk after the bottleneck. Same is probably true for tractors, they pull to the side, they "never" get back on the road again.
It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

Not really the "world-first", they have done that on the Seychelle Islands

Not really the "world-first", they have done that on the Seychelle Islands

They have achieved it on many of the small offshore islands here.

Doing it on the mainland is a pretty big task...

Without having read the article... perhaps it is the programme istelf which is a world-first, not the achievement of being introduced predator-free?

We have a bad rabbit problem too. Years ago some farmers smuggled Calicivirus (not Khaleesi  :facepalm:) into the country to try to wipe them out despite the government not wanting it here. It knocked them back for a year or two I think.
