According to the Daily Mail, Nearly 10,000 chickens have been slaughtered as part of a Bird Flu trial. What ? What ? Which Ministry official woke up in a bad mood that day then ? What’d he do ? Try to kick the cat, missed and thought it would be a laugh to kill thousands of chickens instead ? What was the frigging point of this ? had they killed wild birds, yes, okay – I can see that what with logistics, the wild birds being the carriers and the threat of migration – yes, killing wild birds as part of a trial I could see (not condone, just sort of understand some reasoning) but then the RSPB would rightly be annoyed. But chickens ? read the report !! The chickens were killed in their cages – WHY ? What’s the bloody point ? It’s hardly challenging to kill anything caged is it ? What did they need to do – calibrate the damn gas ? like hell – they’ll have just pumped the whole building full and kept it that way til tea-break.
This was a stupid, pointless exercise that has no excuse at all. None. Whoever dreamt that up should be ashamed of themselves.
“depopulate” – that’s spelt K I L L
