Karen and John Anderson of Warrington, Cheshire have been convicted of keeping two dogs in a cage behind a sofa for 22 hours a day for TWO YEARS leaving them covered in sores and scars. The dogs were found in squalid conditions, ‘emaciated with ribs, spines and skulls all visible’. Rarely fed while trapped, with paws stained from urine and faeces, neither of the Staffordshire Bull Terriers could walk when they were found.
For their crimes, these vile, cruel inhumane 'people' who were said to have "remained impassive as the abuse was read out and they were sentenced" were given 18 weeks in prison, suspended for two years.They were banned from keeping animals for 10 years. A 26 week curfew was also imposed from 7pm to 6am.
