A callous Wolverhampton man has pleaded guilty to 34 animal cruelty charges after he left his family’s starving pet dog to feed on the remains of two of their cats.
He was supposed to be looking after them for his parents:
… his parents were on a lengthy visit to his brother in Cornwall.
One can only wonder where the money went…
Pearson, who had been given £1,515 by his mother to feed the animals, had neglected to do so, Mr Price said.
Judging from the photograph accompanying the story, it probably went down his own
Mr Price said Pearson had “decided he just couldn’t cope” with the animals after they had become unwell.
Pearson’s solicitor Mohammed Ikram said he would make submissions when the defendant returned for sentencing.
A thankless task, I suspect. But no doubt he’s paid well for it.
Mr Blundell, granting Pearson unconditional bail, said: “It is quite an horrific case. We are not ruling out custody because of the nature and seriousness of the degree of harm caused.”
That’s nice – how many months on bread and water would be sufficient, I wonder?
An horrific account of a sub human, unfit for the kind of responsibility he was left with.
"Well, I’m So Glad You ‘Aren’t Ruling Out Custody’…"
Prison is quite the wrong place for him.
Hmmm, someone who abuses and neglects animals is immediately handed the "Go to Jail, Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect £200" card, but someone who kicks the living shit out of another person gets a slap on the wrist.

In other words he'll have to come up with some syndrome that his client was suffering from....poor little lamb that he is.
Autistic perhaps? ADHD?... BESHC (Being an Evil Sub Human Cunt)..?
How can you clock up 34 charges for this sort of thing?
It is funny how we treat pets better than humans in this country yet can put blinkers on when it comes to cheap food animals like factory hens.
I think when I finally snap and go ballistic I'm going to take some cats and dogs as hostages. I bet I get more coverage than if I took a couple of humans.
Captain Haddock has a good name for people like Pearson: Whattock Hunt.
"I think when I finally snap and go ballistic I'm going to take some cats and dogs as hostages. I bet I get more coverage than if I took a couple of humans."
That's actually not a bad idea. Anyone know what the maximum jail time is for,say, slashing a cute andrex-woof's throat on prime time and in technicolour?
It'd be hella effective. Sure you'd get banned from keeping animals for life but they don't police that ban...

"Prison is quite the wrong place for him."
Mucking out the Blues and Royals stables for the next 7 years would be a suitable alternative.
With his bare hands.
"... but someone who kicks the living shit out of another person gets a slap on the wrist."
Solution: Increase the penalties for that threefold, rather than reduce the penalty for animal cruelty.
