I read the recent Veterinary Record letter re-produced on Warmwell.

Whilst I know that all vets were under huge pressure from central government, I find the author`s "we instinctively knew it was wrong" (The contigious cull) quite bizarre. Presumably this vet signed his oath when he qualified? Yet he continued to sign A Forms on healthy animals and "supervise" (how many farms at a time?) the wholesale and illegal slaughter of animals, often in appalling conditions.

Sorry. This sort of weak apologetic nonsense doesn`t wash with me. If this vet and others knew "it was instinctively wrong", why not stand up and say so? Many of us put our heads above the parapets many times and suffered. These vets were gutless!

At least I can sleep at night.
