I WAS disgusted to read about the birds being trapped at Christ Church Harwood. To many people they are vermin but they are still God's creatures and for a church to allow such cruelty beggars belief.

As a Christian and an animal lover I would never knowingly inflict suffering on a living creature regardless of it being a pest or not.

The next time you sing "All Things Bright and Beautiful", think about the next line.

Are you really Christians or only when it suits.
