OPINION:Your canine crusader ws amused to read about a vegan student doing a farm animal management course in the UK complaining about having to visit a farm as a course requirement.

The whinging millennial whined that undertaking the farming unit as part of her qualification was "incompatible with her beliefs".

While she understood that she'd have to attend a farm as part of an animal husbandry unit on the course, the student claims she took that to mean "learning how to care for animals..."

When later told by tutors that students may be required to "watch bull castration or visit an abattoir" as part of the mandatory unit, she claims to have felt "really uncomfortable about the idea of having to attend a farm and help in exploiting the animals."

So, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College said the student did not need to complete the unit if she was "uncomfortable" with it.

Give me strength!
