RSPCA chief steps down

On Tuesday 25th February the Daily Telegraph reported: "The Chief Executive of the RSPCA has left his position at the charity over health concerns.....His short tenure was marked by crisis including the organisation facing questions from the Charity Commission over whether the RSPCA's prosecutions had become "political." There was also concern after he suggested farmers involved in the badger cull should be named and shamed. Read the article in full here. Countryside Alliance Director of Campaigns, Tim Bonner, said: "We do not comment on individual appointments, but we do hope that this is a signal that the RSPCA is going to focus on the laudable work it has traditionally undertaken in promoting animal welfare rather than using charitable donations for pursuing a political agenda."
