The appointment of Nigel Yeo to a top job by the RSPCA beggars belief. This person ordered the execution of a perfectly healthy police dog which was only doing the job he was trained for.

Sometimes police officers also get carried away in the heat of the moment and use more force than is needed. Are they labelled as just a piece of equipment which has failed and must be scrapped?
I think not.

In the United States, police dogs are treated like police officers in every way, with a badge and number.

They are even given full ceremonial funerals if they are killed on duty.

I have always been a keen supporter of the RSPCA but I will now channel my support to other animal charities if it goes ahead with the decision to employ Mr Yeo. I think others will, too.
