The incident comes at the same time that a local cat owner has taken to Facebook to express their disgust and worry about their pet cat having an item forcibly inserted into the animal’s rectum. The RSPCA and Police have been informed about this incident too.

That only applies for service dogs.. a person’s dog is classed as property.. the police the council and other goverment thugs can take , damage and destroy your property.

If the idiot is ever caught, the RSPCA will spend a fortune on taking court action then all they will get is a tap on the wrist.
We need tougher punishments for animal cruelty.

I’m absolutely appalled that any so-called human being could do this. In former times they would have found themselves in Whitecroft indefinitely. The perpetrator(s) must be very sad people.

got to name and shame the scum,the legal system never lays down appropriate punishments for animal cruelty.in my opinion it should be treated the same way as child abuse.what would be the sentence for penetrating a child with an object?….certainly not a slap on the wrists!!
