"It took 25 shots to kill five cattle, and Bill Norman is wondering why more people are not upset about it. Twenty-five shots, each counted by the villagers in Knowstone against a chorus of agonised bellowing as wounded animals tried to escape from the white-coated slaughter team. And that was only the start. As the bullocks stampeded across neighbouring fields they turned what was supposed to be a clinical operation to deal with Devons 164th foot-and-mouth outbreak into a three-day fiasco. The weapons they used were shotguns, firing cartridges fitted with a single, round shot. But with no rifling in the barrel or on the projectile, the speed of the shot and the killing range were limited. And with spooked, stampeding cattle, mistakes were inevitable. On Tuesday villagers looked down on the killing grounds to see one bullock go down twice and get up again before a third shot finished it off. Another was hit in the spine, losing the use of its back legs; it was left pitifully trying to raise itself on its front pair for five minutes until the slaughtermen returned to dispatch it."--Western Daily Press

"In our six parishes, 37 farms have had all their livestock killed because of foot and mouth disease on three holdings, and subsequent blood tests havent even substantiated those. There is quite a lot of anger about because of so much apparently needless slaughter."-----Prebendary Frank Rodgers, the Vicar of Clodock and Longtown with Craswall, Llanveynoe, St Margarets, Michaelchurch Escley and Newton (Hereford).
