Neil Arnold wrote to me a few weeks ago:
Jon, don't know if it's of interest but I stumbled across this webite: http://www.themissinglist.co.uk/ after trying to find info on several local dogs which had been killed, and on the left column under 'livestock' and also 'animal welfare' found many, many cases of slaughtered animals, stolen rare breeds, etc, Cannock Chase deer kills, slaughtered sheep, blah blah.
Some interesting stuff
I blush to admit it, but it was only today that I got around to catching up on my backlog of emails. I woke up early, and decided that I would get to grips with this ever mounting task, and amoingst the emails that were awaiting action was Neil's.
I checked the site out, and indeed it is a remarkable resource, but a horrific one. Like all the readers of the bloggo I was aware that our particularly unlovely species is a nasty and cruel one, but to see lists upon lists of animal killings, torturing and mutilations couched in the matter-of-fact language of a police appeal was, indeed, horrific.
But a useful resource nonetheless. Thanx dude
