Spectre of bird flu returns to the UK

A case of bird flu has been identified at a duck-breeding farm in East Yorkshire. Whilst farmers and consumers selfishly worry about the impact on Christmas meat sales, Defra has ordered the culling of 6,000 ducks from the farm and has imposed a 10km (6 mile) exclusion zone around the farm. Animal Aid has grave concerns about the inevitable intense suffering and stress to the animals that will be caused by this large-scale, emergency slaughter.

Research charities must now swear pro-vivisection public oath

The Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), the sector’s key representative body, has told its 133 members that, from November 20, they must publicly declare their support for vivisection if they wish to remain within its ranks. The move has been condemned as ‘outrageously authoritarian’ by national campaign group Animal Aid because of the way it denies research funders the right to exercise their independent judgement on a highly contentious issue.
