Imagine a table with plates stacked with well-cooked sausages, perfectly crispy toast, succulent bacon, mushrooms, poached eggs and a seemingly endless supply of baked beans. Sounds like a pretty tasty serving of a classic English breakfast, right?
A photo of that hearty meal was posted on the North Wales Rural Crime Team Twitter account, with many people commenting on how much they were salivating.

However, the team couldn't fully enjoy that fry-up without taking a battering from a vegan person.
Days after the initial post, the team posted a screenshot of a woman named Diane, who said: "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."
And to finish 2017 I had to post this recent reply about our Twitter account, to show why we are withdrawing from answering questions or comments on Twitter for the time being.
Nothing more I can say really.......

Unfortunately for Diane, she didn't have many supporters.
More than 100 people commented on the post, and that included a mix of people with different eating habits.
I saw that tweet and felt hungry. Loved it and am pleased you're supporting British Farming! Keep up the great work!!

What if I'm offended that your not posting pictures of cooked breakfasts? As a contentious breakfaster I only think it's within my moral and ethical rights to see how good your breakfast is........

Another added: "As a taxpayer & a vegan I fully support you showing pictures of your breakfast - shows you're human!"
This person said: "I don't eat pork but not offended by it. You can't please everyone all the time but I'm very appreciative of the work you do and the way you communicate it."
While a fourth user commented: "As a vegetarian I can safely say that is a load of twaddle lol... you enjoy your bacon butties."
These guys behind the Rural Crime Team spend their days investigating animal attacks and doing everything they can to protect local and agricultural wildlife - so you can't really slate them for being against the welfare of animals.
The photo of their meaty breakfast is one in a long line of uploads designed to encourage farmers to get together and bond over a cooked meal. Their latest picture is decidedly much more neutral on the eating spectrum, as it only has baked beans, mushrooms, toast and eggs.
People were quick to comment on the image to plead with the team not to bow to one person's belief system.
Everyone's entitled to eat what they want in this world.
