Zoned out

Well, this is a surprise:

limited movements have been permitted, outside the FMD Protection & Surveillance Zones, basically allowing the transportation of livestock directly to slaughter. Considering the outbreak was only confirmed five days ago, it seems a little premature, methinks; as surely this measure would not necessarily prevent further spread of the disease, but could even exacerbate it…. 

Ah well. We must have faith that the ‘experts’ know what they are doing….
