The video is quite shocking.

I have been to the Barn Owl centre and photographed Owls and other birds. In fact I have two great days of photography and Vince knows about photography as well as Owls. Well worth a visit and particularly one of the photography days. OK it was pefect weather and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, even if we had not captured any great images. However, we all had some great images and learnt a little about the birds as well. The staff are very friendly at the centre and clearly enjoy their work.

What a savage sentence! Just a few weeks in prison and even then it's suspended so he basically got off scot-free!

The only effective suspended sentence uses a rope around the offender's neck.

Can we tether his leg and repeatedly kick and punch him as we feel fit!

Unfortunately William, there is just as much abuse being directed at children in this countrySad

I do mean physical, not the Jimmy Savillle type

The saving grace in this issue, is that the neighbour, actually did something about itGrin

I do wish folks would stop hiding behind their curtains and actually report something

We did only a week ago - police came and broke down the
door - fed the dog - owner returned, wondering why his door was boarded upSad

Initailly reported, because there was the posibility that he was in the house unconsious - not seen for over two days

His sentence was far too light, but at least we all know what this man is, and how he behaves.
Good on the neighbor for having the foresight and nerve to keep filming, it cannot have been easy for them, but by keeping a record I am sure it contributed heavily towards building the case as evidence.

Looks like he lost his marbles.
It is said that such treatment of any animals and wildlife is but a short step from treating humans the same.
His mindset will remain however despite the punishment.

Maybe the court should have put him in a room with a couple of hefty men to sort it out and maybe he might realise what a cretin he really is.

Should be banned from working with animals for life if this has not already been done

There is not much I can add to the above, what a sad, pathetic, cowardly excuse for a man.
