The RSPCA is trying to trace the owners of a Cat who was found by a member of the public dumped in a wheelie bin in Merthyr Tydfil with severe injuries.

As well as the shocking adnominal injury which had left her intestines hanging out, the young tortoiseshell cat also had serious lacerations to her tail.

The Cat – who has since been dubbed Hope – was otherwise in good body condition and had a pink leopard print collar with a bell but was not microchipped.

The RSPCA believes she may have been injured and then deliberately dumped in Lupin Close, Merthyr Tydfil, on or around 9 April.

“The person who found the poor cat only discovered her because they heard her miaowing. It is amazing she still had the strength to cry, as she was so badly injured she couldn’t even move,” said RSPCA inspector Sian Burton.

“There is no doubt this cat will have suffered extreme pain and distress. To be so badly injured and then dumped in the dark and left to die. It is just awful.

“Her poor owners may be searching for her, and don’t know what’s happened,” she added.

The cat was taken to a vets in Newport, where she underwent emergency treatment, including amputating part of her tail.

While at the vets, they also discovered the poor cat was pregnant. Thanks to swift work by the vets they have managed to keep the kittens in their mum’s tummy, where they seem to be doing well despite the ordeal.

So far she seems to be responding well and it is hoped she may make a full recovery.

The RSPCA is now hoping to trace the cat’s owner, as well as appeal for witness who may have seen what happened to her.

Causing unnecessary suffering to an animal can be prosecuted under the Animal Welfare Act and could face up to six months in prison and/ or a fine of up to £20,000.

MAN SWINGS CAT BY TAIL: CCTV captures cruelty

The RSPCA is looking for a man caught on CCTV swinging a Cat by its tail in Ramsgate, Kent, UK.

The RSPCA and Police are actively looking to trace the man caught on CCTV swinging the poor defenseless cat around by its tail outside a Pub called the Camden Arms in Ramsgate.

The RSPCA is looking for a man caught on CCTV swinging a cat by its tail.

Footage shows the animal attacker seemingly dancing down a road in Ramsgate, Kent, with the black cat at arm’s length in scenes of abuse that last for more than 30 seconds.

At one point a man thought to be an accomplice is struck by the spinning two-year-old cat, whose name is Mowgli.

Owner Michelle Buchanan, an IT teacher from Ramsgate, said: “It’s horrific. I can’t believe anyone would do something that cruel.”

“Mowgli is emotional. He’s just distraught. He won’t go out the door.”

Mowgli escaped the attack without injury. But Ms Buchanan, who lives alone with her two other cats Missy and Milly, believes the incident has affected him.

“When I got home he was in my bed so that he would feel secure.

“Now, he’ll go as far as the door and turn back. He used to be outside constantly. He’d be scratching at the window.”

Her other pets have been affected by the attack too, she said.

“Before this happened my cats used to sit outside the house on the steps and everybody knew them. Since then none of them do that.”

The RSPCA condemned the incident, which happened on October 29 at 8.30pm. Inspector Caroline Doe said: “This was a very violent, nasty attack on a cat.

“Anyone who witnessed this outside the pub must have been as shocked and appalled as we were. We are hoping that someone will recognise this man and come forward so we can investigate this fully.”

The assault echoes an incident in August 2010 when bank worker Mary Bale sparked outrage on social networks after she threw a cat into a bin outside its owners’ home in Coventry.

Police have been informed about the Ramsgate attack.

6 Month Old Puppy Tortured

The Puppy That Refused To Die: Maggie May the Lurcher Survives Shocking Torture by Callous Thugs

  • Three ‘Thug’ Mates Admit Horrific Animal Cruelty
  • They Fractured Six-Month-Old’s Neck and Stabbed Her with Potato Peeler
  • But RSPCA Inspector says Maggie May is Happy Now

Shocking Cruelty: Maggie May was left in excruciating pain, but she is much happier now.

She was left for dead when thugs stamped on her head, fractured her neck and stabbed her with a potato peeler before throwing her over a fence.

But today Maggie May the lurcher is finally putting that horrific day behind her after a terrible case of animal cruelty.

She now happily walks on three legs – the sad result of torture at the hands of three callous brutes – but is now safe in a loving new home and amazingly trusting despite her ordeal.

Maggie May’s nightmare began when she was badly injured after being hit by a taxi.

Rather than rush her to a vet, her 18-year-old owner, Kieran Wynn, first tried his own brand of DIY treatment by attempting to patch her up with a splint made from chopsticks, red lace and Sellotape.

Then two friends came round to his home in Ferryhill, County Durham, and decided to finish her off.

Sick pals Kevin Varty and Andrew Painter first tried to kill the six-‑month-old pup by treading on her head and yanking her body, fracturing her neck.

When that failed, and with the puppy in excruciating pain, Painter began repeatedly stabbing her with a potato peeler in a frantic attempt to kill her.

Safe Now: 6 Months Old 3 Legged Maggie May pictured with RSPCA inspector Claire Wilson was left for dead by 3 thugs who stamped on her head, fractured her neck and repeatedly stabbed her with a potato peeler

Then, thinking they had killed her, she was bundled over a fence because they could not be bothered to bury her.

But it was that incompetence that saved her life because she was spotted by a passer-by.

Maggie May, now barely breathing, was taken to the RSPCA who got her the expert veterinary care she so badly needed – yet her recuperation still needed several weeks.

Andrew Painter

Kevin Varty

Justice was in part done when Varty, 43, of Ferryhill, and Painter, 32, of Spennymoor, were both jailed for 18 weeks and banned from keeping animals for life by Newton Aycliffe Magistrates, County Duham, England.

Wynn’s sentence was adjourned until later this month. All three admitted cruelty charges.

RSPCA inspector Claire Wilson said: ‘This is the most horrible and shocking case I have ever had to deal with, but Maggie May has gone through it and come out the other side.

‘She is a happy little dog now.’

Man Jailed After Convicted of Animal Cruelty

Eric Buckley was also banned at Pontypridd Magistrates’ Court from keeping animals for life.

Last month he and his wife Doreen were convicted of animal cruelty, including keeping a pony and goats in their cellar, and breaching previous bans.

The couple, who were living in a former pub in Gilfach Goch, had 24 animals in their cellar, the court was told.

The court heard it was a case of prolonged neglect and the animals had been confiscated.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Buckley earlier on Friday after he initially failed to appear for sentencing.

His 46-year-old wife had been taken to hospital suffering from chest pains. Her sentencing was adjourned for a week.

They had admitted five charges of causing unnecessary suffering and two for breaching banning orders.

RSPCA inspectors told last month’s hearing at Pontypridd Magistrates’ Court that conditions were some of the worst they had ever seen.

They had already been banned from keeping dogs for 10 years due to animal welfare breaches in 1993.

After more serious breaches in 1995 both were banned from keeping all animals for life.

Monique McKevitt, for Buckley, told the court on Friday the couple had been on the way to court when Mrs Buckley suffered either an angina or a heart attack.

She said she talked to Buckley on the phone that morning while he was outside a hospital accident and emergency unit.

“She was taken in an ambulance this morning to the Royal Gwent Hospital (Newport),” she told the court.

“It is a possible heart attack, a potentially life-threatening condition, and he is extremely worried about her.”

One of the 11 Grey Hounds Found in Unlit Cellar

Several animals were rescued from Eric Buckley’s home in a poor state

But District judge Jill Watkins said: “Apart from the obvious bond between husband and wife, there is no real reason why he should not answer bail.”

The couple previously appeared before magistrates in Kingston upon Thames, where they were living at the time.

RSPCA inspector Nicola Johnston said it was “beyond anything” she had seen before, after finding nine geese, two goats, a pony, as well as 11 dogs and a cat at the property in June 2010.

The charges the couple faced related in particular to four dogs which were found to be suffering flea infestations, ear infections and oral disease.

At one point up to 13 retired racing greyhounds had the run of the property, which they used as a toilet.

Most though were kept in an unlit cellar, which was almost an inch deep in animal waste.

Ms Johnston said when Eric Buckley was approached about the conditions and asked why he kept so many animals, he answered: “Why not?”

Pony, Geese, 2 Goats, 13 Dogs in Cellar

This is the pony found in the cellarA couple already banned from keeping animals for life were found in a RSPCA raid to have a pony, geese and goats in a “stinking” cellar at their home. Eric and Doreen Buckley had nine geese, two goats, a pony, as well as 11 dogs and a cat in a converted Rhondda pub, Pontypridd magistrates heard.

Both were bailed after admitting five charges of causing unecessary suffering and two for breaching banning orders.

A RSPCA inspector said it was “beyond anything” she had seen before.

The Buckleys were warned they could be jailed.

The court heard how police and the RSPCA raided the Buckley’s “stinking” home in June 2010 only to find they had left over night.

The property, in High Street, Gilfach Goch, was in such a putrid condition, it was regarded as proof of breaching animal welfare rules alone.

At one point up to 13 retired racing greyhounds had the run of the property, which they used as a toilet.

Most though were kept in an unlit cellar, which was almost an inch deep in animal waste.

“I have never seen anything like it before in my life,”
said RSPCA inspector Nicola Johnston.

“Even before going inside the house you could sniff the air outside and realise something was wrong.”

“Inside, it was beyond anything I have ever seen, or hope ever to see again.”


‘Squishing and squashing’

Ms Johnston described how she found worse conditions inside the unlit cellar.

“You stood there in complete blackness squishing and squashing underfoot as you walked,” she added. The air was stagnant and stinking.

Dog
This is one of the thirteen dogs in the unlit cellar.

There was particular worry about the 13 dogs condition.

“To think that somebody thought it was a fit place to keep animals was incredible.”

Ms Johnston said three dogs in particular had to receive comprehensive dental surgery as a result of their condition.

“The vet actually said in the case of one dog that it had the worst dental condition he had ever seen in his career,” she added. “He was horrified.”

“It was so bad when the dog’s mouth opened the teeth moved about individually. To keep animals like that is completely unnecessary.”

She said that when Eric Buckley was approached about the conditions and asked why he kept so many animals, he answered: “Why not?”

Buckley, 56, admitted all the charges against him on Friday on the eve of a trial.

House
The conditions at the house appalled RSPCA inspectors

His wife, 46, failed to attend but had previously made full admissions to all charges through her lawyer.

The charges they faced related in particular to four dogs which were found to be suffering flea infestations, ear infections and oral disease.

“This is a serious case aggravated by the fact that there was an order from a magistrates’ court which you breached and which led to the suffering of these animals,” said district judge Jill Watkins.

They were warned they could face a custodial sentence, with the case adjourned until 17 June.

The couple had already been banned from keeping dogs for 10 years due to animal welfare breaches in 1993.

After more series breaches in 1995 both were banned from keeping all animals for life.

The couple appeared before magistrates in Kingston upon Thames, where they were living at the time, on both occasions.

24 Animals Pony, Geese, Goats, Dogs Found in Cellar

Doreen Buckley’s suspended sentence for animal cruelty

The pony found in the cellar

This was the Pony found in the Buckleys' cellar

A woman who was convicted of animal cruelty has been given a suspended prison sentence a week after her husband was jailed

A court previously heard that Doreen and Eric Buckley, of Pontypridd, Wales, UK had 24 animals in their cellar at a former pub in Gilfach Goch, Wales.

But Buckley was absent from Pontypridd Magistrates’ Court last week when her husband was jailed for 12 weeks.

On Friday, she was given the same sentence, but suspended for 12 months.

The court last month heard that the couple had two dozen animals including a pony, geese and goats, in their basement, and had breached previous bans.

District Judge Jill Watkins was told at Friday’s hearing that the Buckleys had continued to keep animals at home.

An RSPCA inspector had been denied entry to the property last Saturday where, the court heard, they were now keeping four dogs, some fish and two ferrets.

Doreen Buckley admitted that reptiles were also in residence.

She had failed to attend court for sentence last week after the court was told she had suffered a suspected heart attack.

Ms Watkins ordered Eric Buckley to attend alone and jailed him when he showed up.

Heart palpitationsShe extended his wife’s bail by a week but asked for proof that her condition was legitimate.

Neil Foley, Doreen Buckley’s solicitor, told the court the hospital which had last week treated her refused to provide proof she had been there.

But he assured the judge that she suffered from both pleurisy and heart palpitations.

Ms Watkins jailed Buckley for 12 weeks, as she had done to her husband the week before, but it was suspended for 12 months.

Doreen Buckley, who was also ordered to wear an electric tag, agreed to sign over all the animals the couple owned to the RSPCA.

A life ban on keeping animals was also reimposed with more stringent conditions than previously.

The couple had been banned for life from keeping animals by magistrates in Kingston upon Thames where they were living in 1995.

The vice that was used to weigh down the dog

RSPCA inspectors said the vice was a heavy duty tradesman’s vice

The body of a drowned dog has been found weighted down in a North Yorkshire river.

The animal was discovered in the River Ouse near Overton by staff from the RSPCA in York on Tuesday.

Officers described the male Staffordshire bull terrier cross as elderly, of a creamy colour with a docked tail.

The dog was found in the water, attached to a canvas bag containing a heavy duty metal vice.

Insp Gill Corder said: “The vice was extremely heavy and we think it was used to pull this poor animal under the water and drown him.

“It would have been a horrible way to die, and whoever did this is guilty of vile and completely unnecessary cruelty.”

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the RSPCA.
