Interestingly enough....and I quote the Animal Health Act..."any person having in their possession or under their charge an animal affected or suspected of having one of these diseases must, with all practicable speed, notify that fact to a police constable."
Mr Policeman, coz they are supposed to contain the scene until the relevant authorities are on the scene , Prior to mass extermination of all beasts within a 100 mile radius interlooping of course !! Which make you wish you had never advised in the first place!!! and kept hush!!!
