Fox, rats and pigeons filmed by ‘obsessed’ Mersey man
Lee Guy arrives at Wirral Magistrates Court charges associated with animal cruelty.
An “obsessed” Wirral man caught wild animals and filmed the scenes as they were ripped apart by vicious predators.
Lee Guy, 42, recorded the horrific scenes he created by feeding wild pigeons to ferrets and causing a fight between three dogs and a fox.
And his dad Ronald joined in, causing unnecessary suffering to animals through the “inhumane” slaughter of chickens.
The pair appeared together in Wirral magistrates’ court yesterday. Lee Guy, of Harrowby Road, Birkenhead , admitted six offences in court.

Those included the inhumane slaughter of chickens, causing wild rats to be attacked by dogs and taking feral pigeons to feed ferrets.
He also pleaded guilty to causing an animal fight by placing a fox with three dogs.
Ronald Guy, 62, of a separate Harrowby Road address, pleaded guilty to one charge of the inappropriate slaughter of chickens.
The offences took place between November 1, 2011, and June 6, 2013, on Harrowby Road and at a Birkenhead allotment.
Chris Murphy, prosecuting, said: “Warrants were executed at the allotment and as a result the different home addresses were searched.
“Films and DVDs were recovered and phones with footage of the various animal incidents referred to were on those.”
RSPCA officer Anthony Joynes described the case as the worst one of its kind he had ever dealt with.
He said: “This case involves nothing short of animal torture.
“I have spent hours and hours examining the footage of what has gone on here. “Lee Guy is clearly obsessed with the interaction between predator and prey, even to the point that I could hear laughter in the background.”
The pair will be sentenced on March 5.
