    Double Standards

    Post  Trilby Bee on Mon Jan 30, 2012 10:10 pm

    Another dreadful story; Roy Lupton had spent months restoring this beautiful Golden Eagle thanks to his patience, care and obvious KNOWLEDGE. It must be obvious to anyone that a bird of prey is somewhat "different" and would require the attention of a specialist vet, in this case an AVIAN VET. The RSPCA did not call one; why? With all their (donated) money they could afford one to check the bird twice a day if necessary...Certainly when the bird started to look unwell they should have called in a proper specialist whose expertise was known to them.

    If Roy had been charged and had been on the point of being taken to court, believe me, money then would have been NO OBJECT for them. Why? Because they would not object to calling out an avian vet if they thought that the cost of it would be on ROY'S bill. I know from my own experience that this is the case. They ran up a massive vet's bill on my animal in just a few weeks despite having tested NEGATIVE for everything after they "seized" it. For eight weeks that damned vet cashed in mightily at my expense. He was obviously encouraged to do so. He must love the RSPCA; for him they were like having a licence to print money. And my animal did NOT require the attention of, and treatment from a specialist vet; nor did it receive it. When I questioned my lawyer about the scandalous amount, he just shrugged his shoulders and said I'd have to PROVE that the tests were unnecessary. I said that the fact that all the test results were negative was a start...

    Well, an awful story of a man who did everything right for the bird and by the book according to the law and still getting a raw deal.

    At a local level they must love all animals but judgements are being made by people who have the right intentions but do not have the knowledge to make the correct judgements. This means mistakes are being made.

    SHOCKING Shocked and terribly sad for both the deceased Eagle and for the carer Sad
    As one RSPCA inspector told me they are "jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none" by that they meant that they deal with lots of different animals yet do not really know how to care for them properly No
    Surely if they are going to seize animals then an expert must be on hand to make sure that that animal is expertly cared for Smile
