They don't jail animal abusers in the western countries

Northern counties worst for animal cruelty prosecutions – Annual statistics released as part of RSPCA WeekPosted on 18/06/2014  by  Leanne Plumtree                 |                  Leave a reply                                 
                  The RSPCA is releasing its annual cruelty statistics for 2013 and West Yorkshire comes out worst across England and Wales for the number of people convicted of animal welfare offences.

One hundred and twenty six people were convicted of offences in West Yorkshire last year after the RSPCA brought prosecutions. Durham had the second-highest figure with 100 people convicted*.

The figures are just some of those which form part of the charity’s Prosecutions Annual Report**, published to coincide with #RSPCAWeek (14-22 June).

Top Ten Counties

Number of people convicted

West Yorkshire

126

Durham

100

West Midlands

90

Greater London

83

East Riding of Yorkshire

74

Kent

65

North Yorkshire

64

Greater Manchester

63

Tyne and Wear

42

Essex

39


Across England and Wales the number of people convicted decreased 11.7% from 1,552 to 1,371 but across the RSPCA’s North of England region the number was up 6.6% at 566 in 2013 compared to 531 in 2012.

RSPCA regional manager Mike Hogg said: “The figures are usually the highest in the North of England, and of course it’s impossible to say for certain why that is.

“We have a large number of big cities in the region where greater numbers of people typically live. There also tend to be greater levels of poverty and education in these places. Another factor could be that people living in the North are more likely to call the RSPCA if they see something they don’t think is right.”

In our North of England region, the RSPCA investigated 1,763 more complaints in 2013 than in 2012 (38,664 up from 36,901). Across England and Wales the number of complaints investigated rose from 150,833 in 2012 to 153,770 in 2013 (a rise of 2,937).

Investigations that resulted in prosecutions and convictions in 2013 included that of a male Rottweiler dog called Kaiser who was found dead in a filthy yard in Greater Manchester with an extremely emaciated female called Jez curled up next to him. Inside the house one of their pups was found dead and another had to be put to sleep on veterinary advice. Happily Jez, now named April, and two surviving puppies recovered from their ordeal and were rehomed.

In East Yorkshire, a female Dogue de Bordeaux called Bonnie was terrified by her owner who was filmed by a witness chasing her around a garden with a piece of wood. She is now living with a loving family.

In County Durham, a female Shih Tzu dog now called Maggie (pictured) had her pelvis broken on at least three occasions, fractures to her lower back, multiple broken ribs and bruising all over her body after being repeatedly beaten. In total, she had 29 bone fractures. After lots of TLC she is now in a wonderful new home.

‘Man’s best friend’, the dog, was still the animal most likely to be involved in cruelty cases, with 2,505 related convictions across England and Wales in 2013, although encouragingly this was slightly down on 2012 (2,568).

The charity has also emerged as the country’s biggest dog rescuer, collecting more than 17,500 dogs in 2013***.

David Bowles, head of external affairs at the RSPCA, said: “Although there have been fewer convictions relating to dogs, we are still rescuing more and more and the fact is that the RSPCA takes in some of the most needy dogs – we don’t pick and choose by breed or by the desperate lives that they’ve lived before they came to us.

“I think we should be proud that, despite taking in some very damaged animals, we rehomed an incredible 55,323 animals in 2013.”

In fact, some countries, do have animal protection laws but these are rarely enforced. Take my home  ...


Jailed for animal abuse
Posted on 3 December 2014.



A father and son from Northern Ireland have been jailed for abusing 66 animals including ten donkeys after a successful prosecution supported by The Donkey Sanctuary.

Robert and Conor McAleenan from County Antrim were sentenced to 20 months and 22 months in prison, respectively, at Coleraine County Court on 2nd December after pleading guilty to 17 animal cruelty offences.

Robert McAleenan will serve four and a half months, while his son Conor will serve seven. Both have been banned from keeping animals for 25 years.

Sixty six horses, ponies and donkeys were rescued from their premises off Lisnevenagh Road in November 2011. They were starving and living in squalor. Emaciated donkeys were found fighting for survival alongside the carcasses of dead horses.

Michael Crane, Head of Welfare at The Donkey Sanctuary, said: “We welcome the lengthy sentence which reflects the appalling suffering inflicted on these animals. The donkeys were emaciated, with no food or water and no clean bedding. They were suffering from serious health problems and forced to live alongside the carcasses of nine dead horses.

“No animal should have to live in conditions like that. We are grateful to the Police Service Northern Ireland (PSNI) for contacting us to help rescue these animals and to give them a fresh chance at life. The donkeys are now guaranteed permanent refuge with The Donkey Sanctuary.”

The Donkey Sanctuary’s Welfare Advisers worked with the PSNI, Redwings Horse Sanctuary and Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary to remove the animals to safety.

Prosecution witnesses condemned the cruelty. Nic de Brauwere, Head of Welfare at Redwings Horse Sanctuary said the suffering was “as severe as it is possible to encounter”. The manager of Crosskennen Lane Animal Sanctuary said it was “the worst case of horse cruelty we have ever witnessed.” PSNI Sergeant Allison Liddle said the case was “one of the most harrowing” she had ever seen.

Since their rescue, seven of the donkeys have made a full recovery at The Donkey Sanctuary’s farms in Devon and two of them have started a new life with a foster home in Surrey. One young donkey was put to sleep with colic after the rescue. Four horses were put to sleep at the scene.

The nine rescued donkeys have been named Cookie, Crumble, Bumble, Jester, Morgan, Dominick, Maddox, Bryce and Jools.

Annie Brown, General Farms Manager at The Donkey Sanctuary, said: “This is a very sad case but we are very pleased that these lovely donkeys are now safe in our care and in the care of our loving foster homes.”

Where are all pictures of the dead tigers?...I see food on the ground.

The food 'could' have just been thrown in as the pic was taken. On the other hand it could be that the Tiger is too weak and exhausted to eat
