Diesel: From Death Row to Certified Search & Rescue Dog

Comments Off on Diesel: From Death Row to Certified Search & Rescue Dog

“I love a good rescue story & this is one of the best. Had these good people not stepped in, Diesel would have been looking down from Rainbow Bridge! I wonder if whoever sent him to the pound, bought him as a family pet for very small children; then realised he was a bit too boisterous for them to handle. Whatever the story, I’m so happy this beautiful dog has found his true calling in life.”

“But it just goes to show how many decent, good dogs do get sent to death row, through no real fault of their own. Perhaps if their owners just spent a little more time picking the right breed for their family & found time to train their dogs properly, instead of just letting them find their own way; they wouldn’t end up being so misjudged. Kudos to the Missouri German Shepherd rescue group & Monroe City SAR, for giving this dog his life back!”

He was on death’s doorstep last January, one week away from being euthanized due to having been labeled an “aggressive dog” by the Missouri German Shepherd Rescue.  

His name was Koda, and he was believed to be unfit to be in public.  Then Monroe City Search and Rescue stepped in and rescued the 3 year old, and nothing has been the same since.

On January 13th, Koda was picked up and brought to the home of Monroe City SAR  and within days was displaying his agility and intelligence.  He was so enthusiastic that his name was immediately changed to Diesel.  He has never looked back.  Lead K-9 Handler Rich Enochs used tennis balls as rewards and nothing could make Diesel happier.  He adjusted very quickly to life at SAR and got along well with the other dogs, so much so it was hard to believe that what they were initially told about Diesel’s behavior was true.

Monroe City K9 Search & Rescue is a Non-Profit 100% volunteer based organization dedicated to finding the missing, lost and injured.  SAR K9s are trained to find living victims that m may be trapped, injured or lost.  ”Find” is the most important word they know.

SAR dogs are trained to follow a scent in different terrain and weather conditions and to identify the victim from other scents. Their skills are sharpened through regular training sessions and by handlers with daily training at home and in the field, and their training is ongoing and time intensive.

It’s as if Diesel was born to be a SAR dog.  He has become a True SAR K9, visits with the Mentally Handicapped, is “Best Buds” with the Lead Handler’s 2yr old grandson and has become family with the other SAR K9s and,  on October 9th Diesel passed his certification testing.

He is certainly enjoying his new role and being the benefactor of the love and attention he deserves, and Monroe City Search and Rescue made all this possible by believing in him.

White Watch: Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In Jail

Comments Off on White Watch: Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In Jail

“WTF…how can anyone be charged with 15 years yet only do 3 when that person has admitted to the heinous offenses? Why did the judge dismiss animal abuse & domestic violence when he admitted to doing it; the women he raped has to live with that all her life! What is it with these plea deals & bargains, just who do they help? certainly not the victims.”

“This man will be out of prison soon, do you think he will be a changed man? I fear not! I think there has to be Animal Abuse Registry’s set up in every state & town, interlinked so people like this can’t get their hands on animals. I also think that bestiality, sodomy, zoophilia should be incorporated into Brommels 5 Freedoms to further protect animals & help gain tougher charges; they have such little protection as it is.”

White Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In JailJust 3 years….

A Wilmer, Ala. man admitted to raping a woman and sexually abusing a miniature horse  on Tuesday in a plea deal that will allow his release in less than two years.

AL.com reports that Eric Steven Easley  was sentenced to three years in prison, but he’s already spent 14 months in jail, meaning with time served, he’ll be out in 22 months. He was technically sentenced to 15 years, but the deal stipulated that all but three of those be suspended.

The site notes that neither Easley, the prosecuting attorney nor judge Joseph “Rusty” Johnston seemed fully satisfied with the plea deal, which the prosecution claimed it offered because there were “legal issues” surrounding Easley’s rape victim.

Easley was arrested  in July 2011 after a woman said he broke into her home, raped her and held her for several hours against her will, according to a previous story by AL.com.

In 2010, deputies in Mobile, Ala. said they found evidence that a miniature horse’s tail had been tied to a post and the horse had been sexually abusedaccording to the Weekly Vice.

Deputies found a wallet with Easley’s driver’s license and Social Security card at the scene.

Judge Johnston dismissed animal cruelty and domestic violence charges as part of the plea deal, but Easley admitted to the charges of rape and killing or disabling livestock

Stiff Sentence Imposed For Man Who Abused Pug

Comments Off on Stiff Sentence Imposed For Man Who Abused Pug

I would hardly call this a stiff sentence, but it’s a start if jail hasn’t been given before...the maximum sentence for animal cruelty is now set at five years…yet this heinous crime only warranted six months prison for Laberge? My god, I dread to think what one has to do to warrant the maximum five years; if these dogs had died from their wounds I doubt it would have been five years. Surely this heartless monster deserved, at the very minimum, one year in jail, along with a life long ban on owning any animals.

MONTREAL—Last August, Geoffrey Laberge’s neighbours heard the sounds of dogs being beaten and abused.

On Friday, a Quebec judge handed Laberge the stiffest sentence ever meted out for animal cruelty in the province.

When police arrived at the corner of Pie-IX and 55th Avenue in 2011, they found one of Laberge’s dogs covered in blood. The three-year-old pug had been stabbed multiple times, beaten with a lead pipe and shards of ceramic were poking through her fur.

This pug-mix suffered trauma to the head, including a number of stab wounds, shards from a broken ceramic plate, and being beaten by an iron pipe.

Laberge, 37, will now spend six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to five counts of animal cruelty. Both the defence and crown recommended a sentence that also forbids him from owning an animal for the next quarter century.

Up until Friday there really was no deterrent effect,” said Alanna Devine, the SPCA’s director of animal advocacy. “Even in egregious cases of animal cruelty when people were found guilty and being sentenced, they  weren’t getting jail time.”

Both dogs have since made a full recovery and have been adopted by new homes. The story of Roo, the abused pug, stood out for Devine.

“It’s difficult for us to not get emotional,” said Devine, who was present when the dog was brought to the SPCA. “One of the dogs was in such a critical state that we felt she needed emergency treatment.”

Roo was rushed to an animal hospital in Notre-Dame-de-Grace where veterinarians were not sure if the dog would survive the night. Devine credited the cooperation of the Montreal police, SPCA and first responders for helping save the dog.

After an amendment to the criminal code in 2008, the maximum sentence for animal cruelty is now set at five years. Devine would like to see the maximum sentence imposed in more egregious cases.

Quebec has had a spotty past prosecuting animal cruelty, with a US-based animal rights group ranking the province the best place to abuse animals for 2010 and 2011.

“This is going to have a deterrent effect going forward that the judicial system in Quebec is starting to take animal cruelty seriously,” said Devine.

Bestiality: On the increase in Nigeria – Animals Should Be Protected Under Brambell’s 5 Freedoms

Comments Off on Bestiality: On the increase in Nigeria – Animals Should Be Protected Under Brambell’s 5 Freedoms

 I did my first post on Bestiality Brothels in the EU way back in July, which I found disgustingly sickening, but without the voices of animal advocates etc; animals will suffer in silence & I can not allow that. Since that post I have covered several on the topic, but it never gets easier to post, especially as I read the entire post first; so I can then highlight certain sentences or phrases I deem important.”

 “Only the other day I did a post about a woman, apparently arrested for sodomising her dog. I don’t normally allow comments because I don’t have time, I would spend far too much time reading & writing comments, then be in too much pain to post stories.”

“However, due to the disturbing nature of the post, I allowed comments. Almost immediately, I got 2 comments from the woman’s daughter, professing her innocence in the matter! Perhaps she didn’t do it, but surely she must have known it was going on? I have seen pictures of sodomised dogs, it’s very noticeable; especially when the dog is near death due to internal injuries…so I don’t know how she missed the signs! Read the comments yourself, see what you make of them, leave a comment if you so wish.” 

Click this to read story & read comments:-https://preciousjules1985.wordpress.com/2012/10/24/dog-owner-charged-in-animal-sodomy-case-your-comments-on-this/

 In my opinion, anyone who thinks bestiality is normal or acceptable…needs serious help to make them see what they are doing is wrong, it’s both immoral & socially unacceptable. If & when Animal Abuse Registry’s are enforced, any person caught sodomising an animal should have their name on it. Animals have rights, the 5 F’s sometimes referred to as Brambell’s Five Freedoms. 

“This applies to all animals, irrelative of breed! The 5 F’s should be considered as standard worldwide. Heinous act of zoophilia, bestiality or sodomy is not ..normal people don’t see animals as sexual partners

The Farm Animal Welfare Council adopts this concept & I see no reason why bestiality can’t be included. We have a duty to protect animals from humans who seek them out as willing or equal partners”.

The welfare of an animal includes its physical and mental state and we consider that good animal welfare implies both fitness and a sense of well-being. Any animal kept by man, must at least, be protected from unnecessary suffering. 

An animal’s welfare, whether on farm, in transit, at market or at a place of slaughter should be considered in terms of ‘five freedoms’. These freedoms define ideal states rather than standards for acceptable welfare. They form a logical and comprehensive framework for analysis of welfare within any system together with the steps and compromises necessary to safeguard and improve welfare within the proper constraints of an effective livestock industry.

1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst – by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.

2. Freedom from Discomfort – by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. (A resting area – being able to relax;  not be on guard in constant fear from perverted humans )

3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease – by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. (This must include freedom from humans using said animal unnatural carnal copulation for personal pleasure)

4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour – by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind. (In company of their own kind, not humans seeking personal pleasure)

5. Freedom from Fear and Distress – by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering. (This must include freedom from humans using said animal for their own sexual gratification)

With the increase in cases of bestiality among Nigerians, it is unclear why the culprits abandon the natural man-woman sexual relationship for the unconventional means of satisfying their libidos.

It is also foggy as to what could be the sexual attraction of man to animal or the sense behind the call for legitimisation of bestiality in some countries, more so  when the Senate in the United States recently passed into law bill legalising sodomy and bestiality in the U.S. military, thus giving soldiers ample opportunity to practise it freely without facing prosecution.

A U.S. born zoophile was quoted in an online text as saying that there was nothing bad in zoophilia, hence the need to have it legitimised. Said he: “I believe that bestiality, as a sexual choice, should be given the same legal rights and social respect as the heterosexual and homosexual human-human relationships.  I am a practising zoophile who regularly engages in group sex with my fully-matured Rottweilers (both male and female) who willingly and often actively reciprocate the intimate eroticity. We all enjoy it immensely, so what’s wrong with it?”

Another zoophile in the U.S., Carlos Romero, who was arrested for having sex with his donkey, told an online news medium that he practised bestiality because he never felt comfortable around people, and that he was not,”a people person.”

Animals, according to him, “are usually there for you, and their feelings are 100 per cent honest, compared to humans who stab you in the back, give you diseases, lie to you and are promiscuous.”

To Tunde Aramide, a zoologist and animal rights activist, no reasonable person could justify bestiality.Apart from being barbaric, unnatural, repugnant and unjustifiable, those who practise bestiality are abusers of animals who capitalise on the nature of these animals to take undue advantage of them. Bestiality, if you consider it critically, is synonymous with animal rape and other forms of sexual abuse against them. It is illegal and those who do it should be prosecuted.

“Though sexual behaviour of individual persons is always considered a private matter and confined to the realm of morality, no society approves of cross-species sexual intimacy. Those who abuse animals sexually or otherwise are guilty of God’s judgment, because God never wants them exploited. The animals are defenseless and voiceless, yet their basic rights to good living condition should, at least, be respected,” he added.

On why bestiality is on the increase in the country, those who speak with Sunday Tribune, said inability of many in Nigeria to see animals as creatures with defined rights had contributed to the rise.

Mrs Yewande Ogunleyin, a lawyer, said those who practised bestiality were “crude and insane persons who never see sexual molestation of animals as unlawful or unnatural. Their sense of judgement is impaired, so they can’t think properly.

Citing section (214) subsection (2) of Criminal Code, she disclosed that animals too enjoyed the protection of the law as, “any person(s) who have carnal knowledge of an animal… is guilty of felony and liable for 14 years imprisonment.

According to Johnson Oyeleke, a clinical psychologist at the Department of Psychology, University of Ibadan, bestiality is an issue bordering on personality problem, saying those who engage in it behave like animals because their perception of normal things has been impaired.

“It is purely a personality problem. Those who claimed it is their nature to engage in bestiality need clinical assessment to ascertain whether they have personality problem or not. What is the underlining factor that makes you attracted to animals in the first place?

“It shows that they  have some problems inside of them. When they come, there are some tools clinical psychologists will apply on them that will bring out those underlying factors that make them attracted to animals.”

Most clerics, who spoke with Sunday Tribune, said incidents of man sleeping with animals had spiritual implication. Some of the zoophiles, according to Pastor Ayo Adejugbe of Living Faith Church, Ibadan, “sleep with animals as a spiritual prerequisite of money-making rituals. This may sound unreasonable to those in the West, but no African, I’m sure, will dispute this.”

An Islamic leader, Alhaji Ganiyu Olujimi, said, “Islam forbids bestiality. Allah forbids any intercourse between man and animal. Those who do it are not Muslims, they practise it for spiritual reasons, probably to acquire power or money. It is not ordinary.”

High Chief Yemi Elebuibon, described bestiality as inhuman and barbaric, adding that it had no basis in African traditional religion.

“You can’t rule that out in the society, because there are goats and dogs among humans too. There is no corpus of Ifa that is in support of people sleeping with animals in order to get rich.”

A demographer with the National Population Census (NPC), Ms Beatrice Daniel, said the age bracket of zoophiles in the country ranged between 25 and 50, noting that this is suggestive of certain lopsidedness in the society and mental confusion of youths in the country.

“What is happening suggests that those who do bestiality are in for it for a purpose. It may be argued that they are insane or have other forms of psychological problems. The fact, however, remains that this society rebuffs discipline and rewards corruption or immorality and permissiveness.

Acquiring power or money with little stress holds a great appeal to these youths. If sleeping with a goat will bring money or power to somebody wallowing in poverty, he will definitely agree to sleep with as many goats as possible. It is not ordinary, and I believe people do it for a purpose other than seeking for mere sexual gratification.”

Though many are of the opinion that zoophiles need medical treatment and psychotherapy, many also believe that more of them need to be put on trial for a deterrent effect, because allowing zoophilia and zoophiles to go unpunished in any sane society weakens the moral foundation of such a society.

They can contract zoonotic diseases —Prof Oyeyemi

BESTIALITY seems to be on the increase among Nigerians these days, what do you see to this?

Professor Matthew Oyeyemi, Department of Veterinary Surgery, Univesity of Ibadan

With what we have heard and seen here, there are two categories of people that practise bestiality, those who do it for ritual purposes and those who are involved in it for pure immoral reasons.

What do you think should be the roles of animal rights activists in preventing sexual abuse of animals?
It is something that is just coming up; it is true that animals have rights. For example, you don’t maltreat them, you don’t mate animals of different species, it is unlawful and unnatural. It is only animals of same species that should be mated. If somebody violates animal rights, it has punishment under the law. Those in charge should ensure that whoever that abuses animals sexually should be punished or made to face the wrath of the law. They should be apprehended and punished.

Are you saying there is a particular legislation that protects the rights of animals in the country?
There are animal rights, but I may not be specific about this, because it is just a new thing that started to happen in our society. The first case that happened was reported about three years ago.

Could you brief us about the specific rights of animals, what rights do they enjoy under the law?
Under the law animals are supposed to be fed; they have rights to good housing; you don’t perform euthanasia on animals or test dangerous drugs on them. You don’t kill them anyhow.

Does bestiality have any health risks, especially on the part of humans who engage in it?
Yes. There  are  venereal diseases among animals which could be passed onto human beings through sexual intercourse. There was the case of a man caught around 1.00 a.m. having sex with a cow, I wouldn’t mention the place because it is still under investigation. We were  contacted to give professional advice on the issue. The guy was admitted to hospital with his manhood swollen and bruised. He  was diagnosed with a venereal disease which he  contracted from the cow.  The  man confessed to having slept with the animal. So, when there is an intercourse between an animal and man, the man is at risk of contracting venereal and other  dangerous  diseases, like campylobacteriosis, toxoplasimosis.

Do animals feel sexually attracted to human beings?
Unlike human beings, animals have time of sexual arousal called heat. During their heat period, they are aroused sexually and any animal that climbs on them at that moment can have sex with them, but we don’t encourage that because animals of different species are not allowed to mate.

Zoophiles didn’t go through proper socialisation —Dr Olley

COULD you tell us what bestiality means?
First and foremost, bestiality is a sexual deviation; it is one of the classifications of improper or unconventional sexual behaviour. Essentially, sexual deviation occurs when there is an unconventional sexual gratification. The conventional way  for sexual gratification is when there is sex between man and woman, in other words, when the female and male genders meet.

Dr Benjamin Olley, clinical psychologist, Department of Psychology, UI

However, there are people who receive sexual gratification through unconventional means. That is why they are called sexual deviants, and there are several of them; masochism, sadism, paedophile, voyeurism.

Bestiality, in essence, means receiving sexual satisfaction by sleeping deliberately with animals. It could be any animal, dogs, apes, chimpanzees etc. As a matter of fact, there is  a theory that states that the  source  of HIV/AIDS is traceable to  a sexual intercourse between a man and chimpanzee. The disease  got transmitted from the animal and it started spreading according to the theory.

In Nigeria, we have had one or two cases of humans sleeping with animals; it may not be for sexual satisfaction per se, it could be for commercial reason, like making prostitutes to sleep with dogs. But bestiality essentially happens when humans sleep with animals deliberately with the aim of having sexual excitement. It is a sexual disorder and a psychiatric condition any human being can suffer from.

What psychological factors could make one engage in the sexual practice?
Several reasons could make one engage in bestiality. It could be because one is suffering certain unresolved conflicts from childhood, it could also be  as  a  result of  lack of sexual outlets (I mean when  you  are  confined to an environment where interaction with your fellow human beings is difficult and the the only source  of  sexual attraction is an animal close by). It could be a trait of anti-social personality disorder, or a symptom of mental retardation, mentally-retarded people could lose their sense of judgment and as a result sleep with an animal.

It could also be a personality problem occasioned by one’s inability to speak or interact normally with fellow human beings. In this part of the world, one cannot rule out the possibility of supernatural forces. In other words, one could be under a strong spell to engage in bestiality. Nevertheless, the sufferers should be  made to receive adequate treatment, in form of psychotherapy or proper medical treatment.

You made mention of unresolved conflicts as a contributory factor to why many engage in bestiality, would say there are certain social forces that create or trigger  these conflicts within an individual?
According to Sigmund Freud in Psychoanalysis, a school of thought in Psychology, there are some infantile unresolved conflicts that we are not aware of, but they determine some of our behaviours. They are not spoken of, yet they are embedded right in our subconscious level and later find a way of escaping through our errors and mistakes. There are some past experiences we project into the present behaviour, and we are  not conscious of them. We need to resolve those conflicts or what Freud called “sexual pleasures or instincts” before we can do things in a worthy manner.

The sexual instinct in man will want him to satisfy his urge immediately without thinking about the consequences, but we need to teach people to  delay  their  urges. It is not everything you want you can have access to. This is one of the reasons people can’t prevent corruption. You want something you can’t afford immediately, but can’t wait till you can afford it and, as such, you do so many anti-social things just to satisfy that need. Some people are like that, because they didn’t go through proper socialisation, their consciences are not well-developed. These are the people who have unresolved conflicts in them which ought to have been resolved in time past. If you don’t resolve certain things at your tender age, you will carry  them over and begin to manifest them in your adult behaviour.

Is it right to call bestiality a sexual orientation, just like LGBT  since most people who practise it believe that their bodies are naturally conditioned to making love to animals?
Homosexuality or lesbianism is not a sexual deviation. Even though it is unconventional to some people, it is not a psychiatric condition. Depending on the school of thought you operate, homosexuality is an opinion or sexual feeling you have for someone like you. It is an orientation; it is different from bestiality. Bestiality is an unconventional means of sexual gratification.

Tuesday's Horse

Canadian Flag

It is a sorry, shameless business when cutthroat owners send their horses to slaughter because they feel they are no longer economically viable. Reports state that the reason this is taking place is a portion of revenue from the slots that helps keep horse racing going in Canada is to be taken away from the industry next year by the government.

The video below tells the story of a group of Standardbred mares in Canada who have served out their days from racing to breeding, generating revenue for their owner all along the way. Their reward: the slaughterhouse. How often does this take place, slots fiasco or not?

I personally am not moved by the human tears of those doing the owner’s dirty work. I instead reserve my compassion for the horses with their sweet, trusting faces who were sent to a brutal and horrifying early death, when one last…

GRAPHIC Pictures: Abused dog found in Baltimore City

Comments Off on GRAPHIC Pictures: Abused dog found in Baltimore City

There is another horrifying case of animal abuse in Baltimore City — a dog with severe injuries, left to die inside of an abandoned home.

Courtesy of Examiner.com

But the dog survived, and is now recovering with the help of the BARCS animal shelter.

Animal control officers brought her to the shelter on Thursday, where workers named her “Molly.”

“I walked out and saw her to do her intake and I just immediately started crying,” said Lisa Morabito of BARCS, who will serve as Molly’s foster caretaker.

Warning Graphic Picture Below – Do Not Scroll Down If You Don’t Wish To See It

“If anyone has any information that can help shed light on what happened, or who the dog belongs to; please contact the BARCS shelter”

There are fresh bite wounds on the animal’s face and paws, all of them deep and infected.

“She has wounds down here on her paws, he ear is ripped in half,” Morabito said.

There’s also skin missing on both of the dog’s sides, with infection causing those areas to bulge out.  Still, there’s a better than 50-percent chance that Molly will survive.

“Her main thing is the severity of the infection that has spread all throughout her body.  She is losing layers of skin that is just sloughing off right now,” Morabito said.

Courtesy of Face Book

The dog needs antibiotics, cream for her wounds — and rest.

“There’s kind of a lot of bite wounds and trauma around her eye, so we’re not sure whether she’ll be able to keep it or not but we’re going to try,” Morabito said.

The dog was found in an abandoned home in the 2400 block of Christian Street, not far from the West Side Shopping Center.

A contractor entered the home to begin rehabbing it and found the dog in the basement, tied up on a leash. They left her there in this condition,” Morabito said.

Animal Control is now trying to find out who left her there.  Morabito says it’s one of the worst cases of animal abuse she’s ever seen.

“I get upset thinking about it. It’s, you don’t know how anyone could do something like that to a dog,” Morabito said.

Is Molly the victim of a dog-fighting operation?

BARCS officials aren’t sure – it’s a possibility, but it could also be that she and another dog simply fought, and the owner decided to abandon her in that basement.

Laughing yob who shut terrified cat in a tumble dryer and put it through three spin cycles for sick video facing jail

Comments Off on Laughing yob who shut terrified cat in a tumble dryer and put it through three spin cycles for sick video facing jail

  • Allan Staughton trapped a cat in the tumble dryer for 12 seconds
  • Princess the cat suffered a broken tooth, a tongue injury and was left traumatised by the vicious prank
  • RSPCA launched a man hunt for the 23-year-old and have asked judges to place a ban on him keeping pets

A cruel yob is facing jail after shutting his girlfriend’s terrified cat in a tumble dryer and put it through three spin cycles because he thought it was funny.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Heartless Allan Staughton, 23, put the pet in the machine for 12 seconds and even filmed the animal’s ordeal then posted a video of his vicious prank online.

During the video he can be heard joking the cat, called Princess, was ‘the new Mr Tumble’ and asked viewers to rate the disturbing YouTube video on a forum.

The RSPCA were alerted to the online video entitled ‘You must see this – it will crack you up’ and launched a man hunt for Staughton, who posted the sickening film under the alias Nitroazza. They discovered Princess suffered a broken tooth and a tongue injury in the terrifying attack and has now been rehomed.


Sick Staughton is now facing up to six months in jail after admitting animal cruelty at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court.

The lout broke down in tears during the hearing on Tuesday after his internet anonymity was unmasked in the court. “Yes, I bet it’s easy to be a thug & a bully behind an alias!”

Magistrates heard Staughton had been dumped by his lover of four-and-a-half years and thrown out of their home following the cruel stunt.

Robert Starr, prosecuting for the RSPCA, asked the bench to order a life-time ban on him keeping pets. He said: ‘The cat would have been very terrified and would have suffered mental and physical effects caused by the cat having no method of escape.

‘The reason why Princess didn’t move when the door was opened is because the incident would have left the cat in sheer terror, unbalanced and disorientated.

‘It left the cat without any of its senses that you would attribute to a cat. ‘This would have been compounded by the fact that it had no means of escape.’ Mr Starr said a vet examined the cat on July 6 and said it would have been disoriented and traumatised by its experience.


The prosecutor added that when Staughton was interviewed he had thought the incident was ‘funny.’ He added: ‘He accepted it was a disgusting thing to do.’ Klare Kennett, spokeswoman for RSPCA Cambridgeshire, yesterday said: ‘This is a horrible thing to do to a cat.


‘The animal will have suffered great trauma and a great deal of panic in that situation. It is totally unacceptable.’

Magistrates were shown the film of the cat, which has been removed from YouTube, being put into the machine as Staughton said it was going for ‘a tumble’. The dryer was then turned on with the cat spinning inside for 12 seconds before Staughton opened the door.

Even after the cat was on its back in the bottom of the machine with its legs in the door and meowing Staughton spun it twice more. “Wonder how funny he thinks it is now, that everyone know’s who is he, what he looks & what he did!”

The RSPCA tracked down Staughton outside a pub in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire, following the incident on June 14. The court heard Princess the cat had belonged to Staughton’s former partner of four-and -a-half-years who he has a two-and-a-half-year-old child with. 

Magistrates were told Staughton’s relationship had broken down over the incident and he had moved out. “Shame!”

Princess was taken to Wood Green Animal Shelter, in Godmanchester, where she was later re-homed. Staughton, of Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the cat and sentence was adjourned for reports.

Kevin Warboys, mitigating, asked for reports on Staughton who suffered ADHD and a conduct disorder. He said: ‘Mr Staughton suffers from conduct disorder which he says means ‘I just do things without thinking.’ “That’s very convenient isn’t it??”

‘The idea arose from the cat often getting into the tumble dryer after it has been used, which my client believes is because it is warm.

‘This case has had a devastating effect on him and he awaits with trepidation the sentencing of the court.‘  “Awww everybody together now…boo hoo!!”

Staughton will be sentenced on November 13.

He could be jailed for up to six months and fined up to £20,000 for animal cruelty under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. “It’s not enough!”
