British police officers under fire for posting pictures of cooked breakfast to support farmers - because it's offensive to VEGANS

Police officers in rural Wales have been blasted for posting pictures of their cooked breakfasts online - because it's 'offensive' to vegans.

The North Wales Rural Crime Team has long been praised for its pioneering use of social media to raise awareness about rural offences.

But one Twitter user was not impressed when the force posted a picture of their fry ups.

Furious follower Diana commented: 'Speaking as a tax payer I'd prefer them to be less selective when answering questions and perhaps not post breakfast pics that offend vegetarian/vegan followers - pretty thoughtless considering the job title they have.'

Farmer Jono Dixon replied: It's pathetic...The vegans are ruling the roost. They are nothing more than a menace.

'We as carnivores or vegetarians don't dictate about there preferred diet so its time they stopped trolling and whingeing about everyone's daily diets #moveon.'

The picture of a large pile of sausages, bacon, eggs, beans and toast was posted by the crime team in support of the Farmers' Union of Wales (FUW)'s Farmhouse Breakfast campaign.

The initiative encourages agricultural workers to get together over a cooked breakfast to consider the pressures facing the food and drink industry. 

Soon after the force's photo was posted, the team announced it would no longer be responding to comments on social media.

Rural Crime team leader Rob Taylor said the decision was nothing to do with the vegan backlash - but was instead the result of an 'overwhelming' number of replies. He said: 'We regularly get 1m interactions each month and in August alone we had 1.9m. 'We just can't answer (all inquiries) any more as it's a huge commitment.

'Over Christmas we had too much general interaction with people from various walks of life bombarding our feed with questions and we couldn't cope.'

Vegans do not have the privilege to tell others what to eat.

How can it be offensive to vegans or vegetarians to know that other people do not subscribe to their viewpoint when it comes to breakfast?
Especially a rural unit who deal with the people who raise the pigs, chickens and other animals that they are so concerned about.
They must live in a state of perpetual upset.
