This is a country that bans DOCKING of tails of three day old puppies but lets people drowed ten day old puppies and say it is not cruelty.



This is just one case and we call our selfs a country of dog lovers


A MAN who drowned seven Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppies because they got on his nerves has been cleared of cruelty.


Experts were unable to prove they suffered more than if they had been put to sleep by a vet.


John Wooligan, 47, of Whitehaven, Cumbria, said he decided to kill the ten-day-old dogs because their ‘yapping’ got on his nerves after their mother rejected them.


He dropped them in a water-filled plastic box in his bath, and put a second box on top of it to prevent them getting out.


 He buried them in his garden.


He declined to give evidence at Whitehaven Magistrates’ Court last week, but acknowledged the killings during an interview with the RSPCA.

They were yapping all day long,” he told the charity’s inspectors. “I couldn’t cope with seven puppies.


Keith Thomas, prosecuting, said the act of drowning the puppies had caused them unnecessary suffering. But David Roberts, defending, said there was no evidence that such young puppies could experience pain.

His view was supported by Steven Lomax, a vet with 28 years’ experience, who told the court: “I have heard no evidence that the drowning of a puppy is inhumane.”


The magistrates agreed, but stressed: “We are not making any general finding that the drowning of puppies is an acceptable practice
