They are hoping that a cull will send a message to the ladder community not to mess with human beings.
“Too many people are dying needless deaths from these evil, dangerous things. It’s time we taught them a lesson.” said local MP Ron Tuna.
Activists and ladder lovers are outraged by the cull.
“We go up them and then get surprised when we fall off them. We should have more respect – 4 meters above the ground is their natural habitat, not ours.”
