Ewe never know
« on: May 11, 2016, 01:48:29 am »

 Social media sites have been rammed with confusion after police released blurred images of victims of crime - who happened to be sheep.
The lambs' identity was "protected due to their age and vulnerability", West Midlands Police said.
The woolly passengers were spotted after they were herded into the back of a car and driven around by suspected rustlers.
British police have guidelines over what information they reveal about victims of crime - but was there a bit of woolly thinking in the West Midlands force after journalists were given an image obscuring the faces of allegedly-rustled lambs?
The Data Protection Act and Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, which covers family and private life, require the police to protect personal information unless there is a good reason to release it.
My mint sources tell me that an officer in the case blurred the image as a joke.
He presumably concluded he had an obligation under the Ewe-ropean Convention on Eweman Rights to hide the poor little lambs' faces.
Not sure if this should be here or in the Humour section

The ramifications if we leave the eweropean union
will leave us looking sheepish if we don't have any
humane rites for our flocks.
