Here is today’s daily mail article about the animal export incident at Ramsgate http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2261129/Why-did-RSPCA-shoot-dead-40-sheep-grisly-dockside-massacre.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
And here is the RSPCA response https://www.rspca.org.uk/utilities/statement/0113_5
Sorry I haven’t had time to produce a detailed post about this, busy day in my bookshop followed by cooking a large meal.
I have spoken to a few people since my last post on this subject, see http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/no-news-is-good-news-from-animal.html there seems to be some fairly odd feelings about the RSPCA apparently based on personal experiences and rightly or wrongly, there is a definite perception that the charity’s prime objectives are to destroy animals and prosecute owners.
As I said in the previous article I have no experience of the RSPCA in action and haven’t owned an animal for years, but there is a definite public perception that calling the RSPCA about a little old lady and an underfed cat, will result in a dead cat and little old lady in court.
