The penalty for baiting fighting dogs with unwanted pets is probably not even that 'cos the protesters and animal rights activists don't care.

It's disgusting. I hope his face is plastered all over the local and national newspapers just so everyone can see what a sick ******* he is.

Utterly pathetic "sentences" handed out.

 

Suspended sentences and conditional discharges.

 

The judge must have been born yesterday if he believed the **** and bull story from the terrierman about catching the foxes so they could be rehomed.

I heard that the judge was lenient in sentencing partly because they'd been subjected to abuse on social media too. In any case though, sentencing should be based on the crime. I cannot imagine how warped their minds are to get any form of entertainment from watching live, defenceless animals getting eaten alive.

Some Hunt Investigation Team witnesses were allowed to testify behind a curtain due to the abuse and threats they'd received.  And the fact this trial took place so long after the crime was because of spurious claims that police were romantically involved with some anti hunt campaigners. The hunt fraternity threw everything they could at this case and have threatened at every stage. I wish the judge could have taken this behaviour into consideration when sentencing but obviously not. 

 

It also shines a light on the effort to get a conviction that a private organisation must make when the police have proven time and time again that they couldn't be bothered. Evidence was there of crimes committed but the Hunt Investigation Team had to install a tracker on a vehicle and then install cameras in order to get it to court. 

 

Interestingly this would not have been allowed in Scotland where secret camera film of a gamekeeper blasting a hen harrier to death was ruled inadmissible by their CPS because of RIPA and the fact they hadn't obtained permission from the landowner to install the camera. 

 

Wildlife crime is so prevalent but seldom prosecuted and when it is the sentenced are woeful.

I personally don't have a problem with Fox hunting but to throw  these cubs into the hounds was cruel and disgusting. And the sentence was far to lenient even if the defendants have lost their jobs and houses they should have received a custodial sentence for this barbaric act.
