Comments Off on Video – Buried alive! Back-street dog breeders are jailed for cruelty after newborn puppies buried alive

“OMG…This has taken me so long to put together because I couldn’t see the screen for tears! Those that did this deserve far more than 25 bloody weeks, as the judge said…so is that all British law will permit…25 pathetic weeks (they will probably be out in a couple) if it is… then I am ashamed to be British! 25 years sounds better! This is more than shocking, it’s sickening how worthless  puppies lives were to the POS that did this. However, this heinous crime will stick with certain people…Karma is a bitch…they will wish they were still in prison if they value their knee caps!

  • RSPCA officers discovered the tiny animals fighting for life after being buried in the back garden of the home of James and Lorraine Perks in Tamworth
  • The Jack Russell puppies were put down soon after due to their condition 
  • The animals were rescued along with 15 puppies and nine adult dogs 
  • At Burton Magistrates’ Court, James Perks, 74, his wife Lorraine, 49, and Stephen Jenkins, 35, were all sentenced to 25 weeks in prison

This is the forlorn face of a puppy rescued from a back-street breeder’s house where two newborn animals were found buried alive in a shallow grave.

Gasping for breath, the two puppies were discovered in the garden by RSPCA officers, having been covered in a layer of soil hours after they were born.

The puppies were in such a bad state they had to be put down at the scene.

Twenty-four other dogs, some confined to rabbit hutches, were rescued, some ‘barking  uncontrollably as if pleading for help’.

Disturbing footage of the discovery was released yesterday after the three people who lived in the house were jailed for a catalogue of animal cruelty charges.

James Perks, 74, his wife Lorraine, 49, and their lodger Stephen Jenkins, 35, ran a dog breeding business from their shabby home in Tamworth, Staffordshire, in which the animals ‘lived amongst squalor’.

The four-and-a-half-minute film shows the officers scouring the back garden, on August 25 last year after a tip-off from a woman who bought a puppy from the breeders, which died days later.

Officers discovered 15 puppies and nine adult Staffordshire bull terriers crammed into tiny rabbit hutches outside, which they were kept in for 23 hours a day.

One cramped hutch – measuring just 6ft wide and 3ft high – contained four adult terriers while other dogs lived in squalor in the house which was covered in faeces and urine.

In the footage, in which 20 RSPCA officers and police catalogue the shocking abuse of the animals, one officer discovers a tiny puppy whimpering after being buried alive.

An RSPCA inspector is heard saying: ‘The police officer has just uncovered a puppy that’s been buried in the garden. Buried alive.  ‘Oh my goodness me. She’s found it buried alive.’

The squirming, dirt-encrusted animal can be heard crying out as a male vet inspects it and says: ‘It’s so poorly, euthanasia is going to be required straight away. We’ll have to put him to sleep.’

The officer then finds a second live puppy lying near the first.

The video finishes with the RSPCA officer filming the two pups lying almost lifeless on the lawn and concludes: ‘We’re sorting out immediate euthanasia for these poor puppies.’

The other dogs were confiscated and handed over to the RSPCAfor rehoming.

Steve Odell, the vet who destroyed the puppies, said it was one of the most horrific scenes he had witnessed.

The trio were jailed for six months each after admitting ten animal welfare offences and banned for life from keeping animals.

Sentencing them at Burton-on-Trent Magistrates Court  yesterday, chairman of the bench Peter Rolfe said: ‘If we could have we would have jailed them for  far longer.’

Speaking of the buried puppies, prosecutor Paul Taylor said: ‘It was Mr Jenkins who buried them. He accepted he buried them but said he thought they we dead.

‘Mrs Perks told Mr Jenkins not to bury them but when he did so, she couldn’t be bothered to do anything about it.

‘All she had to do was take them out of the ground. Any human being would have done that.’

Upsetting: The RSPCA was alerted to the address by a routine call from a member of the public who bought a puppy from the Perks after seeing a card on a noticeboard

Speaking after the case, RSPCA inspector Jayne Bashford said: ‘No matter how many years I work for the RSPCA this day will remain one which I will never forget.‘All who attended on the day were shocked to the core.

Cruel: Animals were kept in rabbit hutch-like cages and were locked away for 23 hours at a time

‘All who attended on the day were shocked to the core.

‘The property was in a disgusting state and numerous young puppies living amongst the squalor. Two adult bitches in the living room had clearly been bred from several times.

‘The dogs outside, confined in rabbit hutches, had no bedding and barked uncontrollably as if pleading for help.

‘This case highlights all the  concerns we have with respect to irresponsible and indiscriminate breeding of dogs.’

Is this the worst case of animal cruelty ever? Dog shot 40 times in head, tied up and buried alive… but survives – This happened 2011, but is probably still happening!!

Comments Off on Is this the worst case of animal cruelty ever? Dog shot 40 times in head, tied up and buried alive… but survives – This happened 2011, but is probably still happening!!

“Let me say again, this was MAY 2011…but the person who did this is still to be caught…if I am wrong, please let me know. My reason for posting this, is that the brutality to dogs still goes on, just because it isn’t in the media, doesn’t mean it not happening!”

The discovery of a dog that was buried alive up to its nose after being shot in the head 40 times has led to calls for Malta to reform its animal welfare laws.

The crossbreed mongrel, which was named Star by her rescuers, was found near the city of Birzebbuga by animal welfare officers investigating an unrelated case.

After hearing whimpering coming from beneath a wooden board with a tree stump placed on top of it to weigh it down, officers were confronted with the distressing sight of a dog’s face buried in the dirt.

Appalling cruelty: This is how star the crossbreed dog was discovered; buried alive, with all her legs tied together and with 40 gun pellets in her skull.

But worse was to follow. When Star was dug out of the ground they discovered all four limbs had all been tied together and that she had been repeatedly shot with a pellet gun.

Miraculously, after doctors removed 40 pellets from her skull during emergency surgery at the Ta’ Qali hospital, Star survived.

The case has caused outrage in Malta where, regardless of the nature of the act, the maximum sentence one can face for animal cruelty is a one-year jail sentence, or a maximum fine of 46,500 euros.

A pending change in legislation will raise the maximum fine to 50,000 euros but the one-year jail maximum will remain.

Animal lovers are holding a silent protest in Valetta next week to express their disgust.

With the abuser still at large, people have expressed their support with dedicated Facebook pages, the largest of which has 7,000 followers.

More than 1,000 people have also signed an online petition to help catch the perpetrator and to generate funds to meet Star’s vet bills.

A local jewellers has offered a 250 euro gift voucher as a reward to help catch the sick individual who abused Star.

But her case has touched hearts much further afield and Star has received a personalised blanket from Canada as well as letters of concern from the Amsterdam Fire Brigade.

Having gone through an appalling ordeal, Star is now spoilt for choice with 20 potential loving new owners offering to adopt her.

However, due to the level of trauma through which she has been, Star is considered too withdrawn to be re-homed at the moment.

‘We have another 110 dogs that also went through bad experiences and need a home, maybe people can help them,’ Malta Animal Welfare Department spokesmanJanice Chetcuti told The Times Of Malta.

“Just watch the video, if you happen to be vacating in Malta, keep your eye’s open…please!”
