Some excerpts:

Another cheating case (forging signature of vet)

We know it is the MCO-period and everyone is stressed out, BUT that is still no reason to cheat.

Here’s what happened:

2 The receipt did not have her name on it, also the vet did not sign it, so I informed her.

Feeders have so far had no problems going on their rounds to feed animals in their colonies. Shelter staff and workers are allowed to go through roadblocks […]
