to pay a shilling (5p) for a grey tail - at the time a pint would be about 
1/6d!Having seen entire young plantations of beech ruined by greys, if given 
the opportunity I would bite every single one in the UK through the neck 
myself (or maybe draft in some HNS dentures!).If their tails were not furry 
they would be seen for what they are.Jim -----Original Message-----From:
