    I just don't understand the levels of animal cruelty some people seem capable of.
    Margaret Greaves kept 30 dogs, two cats and two parrots in dark rooms and in cramped cages which were covered in faeces and urine.
    She won a Flyball title at Crufts in 2014 so she wasn't incapable of caring for animals. She'd planned on having them all put down but was raided the same week.
    She got a suspended sentence and is banned from keeping dogs for life. Good.
     
  2. Suspended sentence? She should be suspended all right! At least caged.

    Sadly these sort of sentences for animal cruelty never go far enough for me. Even if she had some sort of illness that doesn't explain why she couldn't have sought help.
     
  4. This:

    "Sean Smith, defending, said: "Before this incident she had sold off kennels and equipment as she was thinking of moving.

    "There was a time when she decided she could no longer cope and decided to downsize. She planned on having the animals put down that week.""

    ...is her DEFENCE?

    What a twat, should make her live in a room for a couple of months without any sanitation, the heartless cow.

    There should be a limit on the number of dogs a person can keep, and dog breeding should be tightly regulated.
     
  7. Obviously not an animal lover, probably just sees them as a business.

    Crufts is corrupt as fuck. Nobody there gives a fuck about their dogs welfare. Care more about a rosette than whether there dog enjoys their life.

    There should be dog licences, properly paid for, not just the token fee they once were and also far more encouragement to get a rescue pet rather than going to a breeder.

    I hate to see anything in cages. My local pet warehouse, Jollyes, where I get my cat supplies, has started to sell birds, rats, mice and rabbits. It puts me off going in as I find it a bit upsetting.

    Dogs to them are just a means to an end.

    Up until a few years ago when the shit finally hit the fan, the Kennel club and the likes of Crufts were responsible for canine cruelty beyond belief with their evil breeding practices.

    What a scumbag. Those poor animals in small cages. She wants a good kicking. I'm sick of the courts going easy on twats like this. I hope she gets animal rights groups banging on her door.

    Yet many on here are happy that 000's of PEOPLE live like this in refugee camps through no fault of their own.

    So you think they should be put down? Bit harsh imo.
