Back in May 2010 Dr David Clarke ran a piece on his blog, mocking the UK based Animal Pathology Field Unit - set up by Phil Hoyle and David Cayton to investigate cases of animal mutilation. Blog link here: http://tinyurl.com/7lcvvkq Under the heading 'Ewe couldn't make it up' he questioned why The Sun newspaper followed by others, had run stories about mutilation incidents without naming any farmers involved He wrote "Who are these farmers and why isn't a single source - apart from Hoyle - named in the story?" His blog piece added that his own basic enquiries established that an animal health team which is part of DEFRA (the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) hadn't received a single complaint from farms or an unexplained animal mutilation report in the past five years. David asked "But why let the facts get in the way of a good story." I came across David C's blog this week while looking into new horse mutilations being reported in Wales and the West Country, so contacted David Cayton with David Clarke's reported criticism casting doubt on the accuracy of his unit's reports. A couple of links here about Hoyle and Cayton's APFU. http://www.apfu.org/index.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DW-zl-WdJwHM In the interests of 'balance' - which journalism lecturer David Clarke appears to have neglected in this case - I will paste here Cayton's response to Clarke's comments (which he describes as a "debunking rant") Cayton writes: ----- "Clarke just doesn't understand so much about farmers and their uneasy and unhappy views about DEFRA!!!! Over the years, farmers have said that they would only engage with them if something serious like foot & mouth broke out on their premises. If they 'invited' them on to examine an animal mute, they are likely to pass it off as something normal and confiscate the carcass AND I know of 2 cases where the farmer has been seriously threatened if he talks to media or the likes of us!! Typical 'threat', is to warn that they will 'review' their government 'subsidies'! This could lead to serious financial problems and at worst posing their home and livelihood entirely! Further if they 'invite' these people onto the farm, they go sniffing around looking for items of criticism leading to possible penalties being imposed! DEFRA personnel are seen as bad news! In our collective experience, farmers will more often than not, demand complete anonimity to be agreed by us, before they will liaise and allow us to examine and photograph their animals! The very recent ongoing horse and pony mutilation deaths are prime examples of the operations of certain cells of DEFRA and/or other high level government departments /units, who are the agencies behind warning the police, RSPCA and the vets to wrap up their enquiries and promulgate stupid responses like normal sick animals as the cause, or natural predation, cults and the like!! Many Veterinary Practices around the U.K. are directly controlled by DEFRA as they are VLA accredited ( Veterinary Laboratories Agency). This is one vital way that enables DEFRA to keep their finger on the pulse re the animal mutilation problem!! Also they will try all ways possible to keep these attacks off the public radar and concoct all manner of silly explanations for it if and when there is a leak to the media in some form, eg. Horse & Hound magazines etc etc!! Pressurising a vet to then refuse the horse owner to have a second opinion or independent autopsy and even, as now get the police to refuse the horse owner photographs of their own animal!!!! Clarke is just another of the detractors being constantly used by the media to throw cold water on any 'dangerous' factual information which could cause members of the public to stop and seriously consider these events as likely evidence of alien intervention on our planet! We have little doubt that he and a few others are actively 'encouraged' to do this and at the same time 'appear' to represent serious ufology!! Only last night, he was at it again, along with Ian Ridpath and Mark Pilkington, all invited by the BBC to make 'their' dubious contribution to the Stargazers Live Program, broadcast from Jodrell Bank RT in Cheshire, fronted by Prof. Brian Cox.!!!!!! These 3 'gentlemen were required' to help 'put to bed' any serious studio discussion that aliens are actually here on a regular basis. Ironic that at 10pm on Sunday August 18, 1996, a cigar shaped UFO was seen= by credible witnesses, stationary for over an hour directly over the Lovell= main dish, beaming down a wide NON DIVERGING, soft beam of whitish light, directly into the dish! I was refused a look at their daily log by an officious and unpleasant female spokesperson! I knew the telescope was in use at the time, so assumed it was seen, a mere 300 feet above and /or also= the beam may have interfered with the operation of the telescope?? Richard Hall covered this item on his RP 'Starship TV programs, under the banner of 'The Cayton Files'. Still on his website I believe? DVD's also available." End Cayton's statement. ----- Whether or not the recent UK mutilation cases are anomalous or simply some ritualistic or perverted horse ripper - I know not. But here is a link to the Welsh case: http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/news/397/311039.html And here is a web posting from the daughter of Linda Mann, the horse owner... ----- "I'm Nicola, the daughter of Linda. Thanks for the lovely supportive comments. As you can imagine this is devastating. Barney was a rescue pony and the sweetest gentle little soul. I'm reading the news reports that the "police are doing an investigation"..well that's just not true...they took two hours to respond to the call, didn't even bother to go and look at his body on Thursday when it was reported and only did on Friday when my brother and I insisted that they do so. Since then the police have never once asked any questions or showed any interest in the mutilation of Barney. A two foot long by one foot deep cut deep cut has been made along Barney's stomach and his genitals (he was a stallion) have been removed, his eyes, ears and mouth were cut. I asked the police who attended on Friday why they haven't treated this as suspicious when anyone can see with an untrained eye that the wound to his abdomen was foul play. Her comment....."it was dark when we saw the pony's body" It was evident that boot prints and other evidence were around the scene. Now another poor stallion in Cornwall has been taken under the same fate. Can anyone help us get the word out about how serious this needs to be treated? We really need help to stop this happening again and find the people who did this to these two stallions. To date I have =A3500 reward for anyone giving information leading to a conviction..so please if you think you may know anything please contact us. Please email me with any help or information you might have missmann2001.nul I just wont stop or let these thugs sleep easy until we have justice for our dear friend Barney. Thanks again for your heart warming messages. Nicola" ----- I gather the police have now concluded their investigation of this Welsh case and state that the horse died from 'natural causes' Dave Haith Listen to 'Strange Days...
