Legal animal antics

For the animal lovers out there I have two pieces of news for you. The first may appeal to you as a farmer Grit. Most people that I speak to think that the city of London is a great place to visit.

If you Grit, were to become a freeman of the City you would be entitled, under a several hundred year old law, to lead a flock of animals across any of its bridges. Now there’s a thought!

Also, in Sweden sometime ago they extended their employment laws to include animals. It is illegal for any employer of animals to allow seals to balance balls on their noses. It is just as well that the Swedish football (soccer) team does not employ seals
