Excessive!

WTF
I was sorry to read of the sad outcome of a dispute between an elderly pensioner (Pauline Spoor of Hattersley, Greater Manchester) and the RSPCA over her old frail dog Dexter (18).

Dexter was suffering from severe arthritis and conjunctivitis, and in the opinion of the professionals needed to be put down to be out of his misery. Mrs Spoor, being human, couldn't bear to have her companion put down.

In May the RSPCA alerted the polcie to the dog's plight, and they duly broke into Mrs Spoor's home and placed Dexter with the RSPCA who put him down.

Mrs Spoor was then taken to court and convicted of animal cruelty. She was sentenced to wear an electronic tag on her ankle, and given a 3 month curfew preventing her from leaving her home at night.

Why would a frail elderly woman living in Manchester want to leave her home at night?

It seems to me that the above sentence is disproportionate to the circumstances. Sadly, this case has been ignored as certain publicity seeking politicians seem more concerned with trying to lessen the sentences handed out to morons who try to start riots using Faecesbook.

    I love animals, I have always owned a dog and having a loved pet put down is one of the most painful things you will probably be called upon to do, and I have had to do it many times. Unlike this poor lady I have always managed to face up to the responsibility that goes with owning a pet, but because I know how hard it can be she has my utmost sympathy.

    Yes, she was wrong to keep the dog going in that condition, but surely she has suffered enough punishment by losing him in this way without an unbelievably disproportionate sentence. To my mind the case should never have even got to a court.

    Whatever happened to simple compassion?

    What a pathetic lunch of wankers!

    I hope she's going to appeal.

  3. When I read the artical a couple of weeks ago, I noted that the dog always stood up, wagged it's tail and went out with the owner when she took it for a walk.

    This new idea of a charity being an extension of the state sickens me; I decided to not give money to the RSPCA a couple of years ago even though I love animals.
    The RSPCA investigate, prosecute, judge and punish those that they decide have abused animals; I don't think a charity should be doing such a thing.
    They even try the old left wingers logic when knocking on your door; You won't support our cause, therefore you want to harm animals.
    I has a man from South Africa knock on my door on behalf of the RSPCA, he got rather rattled when I made my points to him. It turned out that he worked for an agency that was employed by the RSPCA and that agency took 16% of any money collected to cover their costs etc.

    If I want to give to an animal charity, I give to a local one where 100% of the money given, goes on the purpose that money was given for.

    Charity is big business these days but, should never become part of an oppressive state as the RSPCA has become.

    The woman has my sympathy. I wonder what kind of idiot thought it wa right to prosecute this woman and what kind of magistrate thought it was right to treat her like a child and ground her, which is what in effect has happened. As a poster above suggests; this woman has suffered enough and it is a pity the state and its little helpers like the RSPCA, don't get so animated and angry when people suffer harm and neglect.

    In general for a prosecution to go ahead, it has to be in the public interest. Mainly there has to be a victim and a risk of repeat. To put the welfare of a dog, who was not directly mistreated, but only mistreated by omission of an act nonexistent in nature, on such a high pedestal shows how far the state has degenerated.

    My advice is simple - stop donating to the REPS.

    They no longer deserve any of our money.

    I quite agree with you! Clearly compassion is something Nanny only shows towards real criminals, not easy targets like this lady.
    Was it really necessary for the police to break into her home. like the Stasi? I trust the chief constable has paid for the damage out of his own pocket? No, I don't think so either!
