Today the Welsh Assembly Government enforced an overdue test on a farm in Chirk, near Wrexham, NE Wales. And in an ugly outcome to this, three cattle were shot.
Full report is in the Wrexham Leader, which describes:
One woman, who did not want to be identified, said: “It was a big operation with police and other official looking people taking part. There were two to three quad bikes and several Land Rovers around.”With rifles?
A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “We attended on the execution of a warrant. Officers were working with trading standards.”
