Police are appealing for information to identify the person who removed their electronic tag and placed it around the wing of a Canada goose.Shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. Which local scumbag is now sans tag?
Or rather, which tag recently showed its wearer as in the middle of a pond or flying at 500 feet?
I mean, they do monitor these things, don’t they?
Two members of the Friends of Kelsey Park had observed the goose becoming increasingly distressed in Kelsey Park on Monday (March 14).
They managed to capture the bird and remove the tag, before handing it in at the Elmers End Safer Neighbourhood base.Ah. Clearly not.
Enquiries are ongoing at SERCO to identify the offender concerned.Those tags are clearly so closely monitored and foolproof, aren’t they?
Surely they could identify the 'owner' of the tag instantly, from a serial number or microchip? I mean, that's the whole point, isn't it?
My dog is chipped, and any vet in the country could tell who he belonged to within 30 seconds. Don't tell me we have a better system for tracking animals than we do for anti-social humans?
Hmmmmm! So tags are useless then! Not surprised really.
"SERCO" .. says it all really ..
Hmmm they may know who, but they might not know where.
Or they may not...
A bit bloody thick (though why am I not surprised) putting the tag on a highly visible Canada goose ..
Why not just give it to an illegal "enricher" .. that way the PTB would never have found it ..
Oh, ain't technology wonderful?
My dog has a chip on his shooulder as well. He looks at me as if to say "Do you really expect me to bark at everyone who comes to the door? You treat me like a dog."
How can I enrol him on a Jamie Oliver sponsored obedience training course?
"Surely they could identify the 'owner' of the tag instantly, from a serial number or microchip? I mean, that's the whole point, isn't it?"
You'd think so, with all the promises that were made for this wonderful new system, eh?
""SERCO" .. says it all really .."
It DOES show an amount of amusing initiative....somehow.
Of course, if they had picked the correct time of year, they could REALLY have confussed the situation.
