Two more evil bastards get away with it


Sick thugs laughed as they filmed dogs killing fox

May 04, 2017

Two thugs howled with laughter as they set their dogs to kill a cornered young fox – their own shocking video revealed.

In the disturbing footage, a man is heard to shout “Get on him b****!” as a dog attacks the animal, while in another shot they toss the defenceless fox into the air.

A video of the “deliberate and cruel” act was posted on Facebook by Jack Crocker, 41, and Robbie Long, 21.

It shows Crocker bringing his Saluki dogs Lady and Princess into a barn before they are set on the terrified animal to inflict a “painful and drawn-out death”.

During the two minute video of the attack, both men are heard laughing and goading the dogs to keep attacking the defenceless fox.

But after it was put on social media the RSPCA were called in to investigate, and both Crocker and Long were arrested.

The pair both admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and were given suspended prison sentences.

Sentencing them at Bodmin Magistrates Court, Judge Diana Baker said: “The DVD clearly shows him encouraging the dog to attack the fox.

“Most concerning there were howls of laughter during the two minutes. This action is deliberate and cruel.”

Long and Crocker were not disqualified from keeping animals following the incident – but the two dogs were signed over to the RSPCA.

The incident took place at High View Farm in Bodmin, Cornwall, last June.

Crocker, of Chacewater, near Truro, and Long, of Redruth, were sentenced to six weeks in prison, suspended for a year.

They were both also fined £425 and ordered to each pay a £115 victim surcharge.

Crocker was also given a consecutive two week suspended prison sentence for using a bow and arrow to kill a rabbit, after he admitted the offence at an earlier hearing.

Speaking after the hearing, RSPCA Chief Inspector Ian Briggs said: “The footage clearly shows these two men watching as the fox was subjected to what would have been a painful and drawn out death.

“Far from dealing with the situation responsibly and humanely they filmed the incident and could be heard laughing as the fox was being attacked.

“We hope this case being brought before the court will encourage others to report any concerns they have about animal welfare to report them to the police or RSPCA.”

  1. The sentences given out to this sort of subhuman garbage is heartbreaking for those of us who care. I’m getting to the point where I really can’t cope with what is happening and now that it looks as if the Tories will win a massive majority, we will lose what little protection there is. As well as repealing the hunting act, they will make it virtually impossible for any form of opposition. We are going to have to find a way to fight back, otherwise all our wonderful people will pay a severe penalty and the police will be only too happy to deal with them. Added to that of course, the animals will be the greatest losers and there will be a surge back to hunting.
