Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 9.26.42 PMProfessor Christopher  Wathes (no-one ever called him Chris!) died a few days ago. He’d been ill for several years with a neurological condition.

This very nice man (despite the grim face here – I cannot find a decent picture) was based at the RVC, helped ensure my former student Charlie won a post there, and reinvigorated the UK’s Farm Animal Welfare Council. He was also something of a mentor to me earlier in my life.
