How to do your bit for foot'n'mouth
And it's fun too!
Some enterprising young Web folk have decided to do their bit for foot and mouth and knocked up the subtly named www.sheepcull.co.uk.
While the disease has made huge swathes of the countryside off bounds, given Americans the impression that we are living under curfew, ruined industries and provided a glut of human interest stories, the boys behind SheepCull have decided that a Flash-based game is what we really need.
So pop along to the site, wait a short while for the game to load and then blast rampant sheep with your mouse-led boltgun. You get 50 bullets and more sheep than the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food can deal with.
It's certainly worth a brief Wednesday visit (watch out for the boss though). Sadly, in terms of games, it doesn't reward the addict - bigger sheep in the forefront are worth just as much as the small ones at the back, so culling skill is undervalued.
That said, happy culling. ®
