I Suppose There Isn't Any Evidence If You Refuse To Look...

Sentencing the pair, Ms Richardson said: “That video was distressing and you know you didn’t do what you should have done to protect that horse.
“It was a poor decision but there is no evidence of long term, wilful neglect or cruelty to any of your animals.”
Wilson was also sentenced in relation to four other animal welfare charges.
He admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a lurcher dog by failing to have an infected wound checked; keeping ferrets in a dirty cage with a rabbit carcass and no water; keeping a lurcher in a cage covered in excrement and failing to ensure a West Highland Terrier who had injuries to his mouth was protected from suffering.
It's about time some magistrates were beaten like a rented mule...

And still the scales have not fallen from Justice's eyes. She should fall on her sword in shame.

Pets often get petted, and loved. Working animals should be loved all the more because they actually make a financial contribution. Some people think that I abuse animals because I support hunting. No. Animals, whether wild, domesticated or working require good husbandry. That man ought to be treated as less than an animal. Ferrets can be wonderful companions, especially in a pub amongst a few girls (better pullers than a bijou frisson, or whatever). How can anyone treat a hoss or suchlike so poorly? Does he treat his pickup so?

Indeed... :(

"That man ought to be treated as less than an animal."

He's proven by his actions to be exactly that.
