Walrus now in Northumberland? (1 Viewer)

I reckon a walrus - a species that shrugs off full-on attacks from Polar Bears - that has spent time in a working naval dockyard roosting on a working submarine doesn't need the well-meaning but basically ignorant bleatings of these people to keep it safe.

I feel like the aim is to keep the people safe.

If someone gets too close and injures themselves the walruses days might become numbered?

No, I don't think so. We can still recognise idiots in this country. I think it's called contributory negligence, not that the Walrus has public liability insurance....

Plus there are more people in this country than Walruses in the world, so the relative conservation value of a human is basically zilch, or considering the damage they do, possibly less than zilch. NFA in the event of an injury, anyway.
