Police animal cruelty

#1
Notts, police kill 2 of their German sherperds by leaving them in a van outside a police station to die of heat, useless plod barstewards, hope they get Effed by RSPCA

Why does it need the RSPCA to prosecute, the police have the ability to do that, animal cruelty is just that. Doesnt need the RSPCA to find the culprit. The individual(s) concerned should have the balls to stand up and admit it, and resign his position, pending his court action. No excuses.

Because the IPCC is totally EFFFin useless, it will probably say the poor dogs comitted suicide.

Aye,but is it in the "public interest" to prosecute?
Your answer is here:

'The promise of reform which the Green Paper heralds holds much for the public and Service alike; local policing, customised to local need with authentic answerability, strengthened accountabilities at force level through reforms to police authorities and HMIC, performance management at the service of localities with targets and plans tailored to local needs, the end of centrally-engineered one size fits all initiatives, an intelligent approach to cutting red tape through redesign of processes and cultures, a renewed emphasis on strategic development so as to better equip our service to meet the amorphous challenges of managing cross force harms, risks and opportunities.'

That's an answer?
All I see is "waffle expensive consultants waffle waffle expensive waffle"

The police are quick to attend and break in to cars where members of the public report dogs in cars during hot weather, the RSPCA are then quick to prosecute, making an example of the dogs owners.

I'd guess were in for another demonstration of one law for them and harsher law for the rest.

Nottinghamshire vet Andrew Wilson said: "Dehydration would have been a big factor.


We are investigating and they are co-operating with us

RSPCA spokesman
"They wouldn't be able to cool themselves because panting wouldn't be effective anymore, there would be no evaporation from the tongue.

"As the core temperature rose as a result of that, and the brain temperature rose, the brain would cease to function and various other organs would fail. This happens certainly within 30 minutes


30 minutes ? That is quick

No ifs, no buts, no maybes sack the useless officer forthwith.

Unfortunately dogs are not that good at coping with extreme heat stress.

With a normal body temperature of about 101F and heat stroke kicking in at about 106/7F and only being able lose heat by panting, they have no chance if the air temperature is at or above 107F.

Inside of a car in a UK summer can easily be 120F+

A terrible way for those two hounds to die even if it was relatively quick. The officer resposnsible should hang his/her head in shame, resign and be prosecuted. This isn't a case of some numb-nut civvy leaving the dog in the car with the windows up whilst they nip into Tesco; this is a [supposedly] professional who has been trained and is paid good money to handle dogs AND look after their welfare. I imagine fellow handlers are equally disgusted by this act of irresponsibility.
 
#14
On Jeremy Vine now ... possibly a handler who drove to the station with the dogs in his own car?

Vet on at the moment estimates that in this heat a dog in a closed car environment will probably only last 20 minutes and will die an horrific death.

I've just got the keys folks. The BNP supporters want them back to attend prayers at a mosque tomorrow though.

All aboard.

Indefensible,as plod i will stand up when I feel I should but in this case thehandler should be hung out to dry. The missus is a Dog Handler and she was even more outraged than me.
All our farces dog vans are air conditioned and the rears are always locked open when stationary,that is SOPs without fail.
There is no excuse for this.

This is an absolute disgrace and the officer involved should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I won't even take my dog out with me in the car, in this weather, unless going directly to the beach, let alone leave her long enough to die what must've been a painful death. As said by others this wasn't some unknowing civvie making a rudimentary mistake, it was someone who is supposedly trained in handling and care of these animals.


oh and C_J I call shotgun :lol:

As mentioned on Radio 2, the law allows a lengthy jail sentence and a big fine.

Jail the wan*er and fine the police force ..BASTARD!

I could understand if this mistake had happened in the "Heat of the moment" so to speak but to leave dogs in a car outside a HQ... Shocking.

Our Land Shark handlers are all fiercely protective over their dogs and take very good care of them so they will be shocked by this too.
