In its ‘RSPCA policies on animal welfare’ it states under its Objects of the RSPCA that ‘The charitable objects of the RSPCA are to promote kindness and to prevent or suppress cruelty to animals

The RSPCA’s vision is, ‘To work for a world in which all humans respect and live in harmony with all other members of the animal kingdom

Under its Mission Statement, the RSPCA declares ‘The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering.’

And under their General Principles, the RSPCA states ‘The general principles on which the RSPCA operates, derived from extensive scientific evidence, is based on the fact that vertebrates and some invertebrates are sentient, and can feel pain and distress.’

What happened to all those honorable and admirable objects, visions, statements and principles when RSPCA inspectors arrived at an address in South Wales and proceeded to slaughter ten German Shepherd dogs with a captive bolt?

Oxfordshire woman jailed for drowning eight cats
Julie Carter claimed she could not afford the phone call to have the animals rescued
The RSPCA couldn't afford the phone call or maybe couldn't be bothered, to help the 10 German Shepherds left on their own after their owner died in 2009.

An Oxfordshire woman who admitted drowning eight cats in a bath has been jailed for 12 weeks.

Julie Carter, 43, of Bicester, told RSPCA staff she could not afford a phone call to have the cats rescued so killed them one by one over a week.

The cats were all aged between one and three years old. Another three were later rehomed.

Carter told Banbury magistrates she had killed the cats because housing officials had told her to remove them.

The RSPCA said that when an inspector later visited her property, she had initially lied, saying the animals had been put to sleep by a vet.

'No choice'
She later confessed, saying she had not had enough money to contact any animal charities, and had drowned the pets in a baby bath instead.

She told the inspector "she felt she did not have any other choice," the RSPCA said.

Carter, of Herald Way, who had admitted a charge of causing unnecessary suffering at an earlier hearing, was also banned from keeping animals for life.

Speaking after the case, RSPCA inspector Doug Davidson said: "The callous and brutal drowning of her eight pet cats is not acceptable in the 21st Century.

So the slaughter of 10 German Shepherds with a captive bolt gun after their owner had died by an RSPCA inspector, wasn't callous and brutal!! It seems that there is one rule for them and another for everyone else. Nice to know how your donations are being spent.

"She did not even attempt to seek help to rehome the animals, and instead caused them unnecessary suffering by drowning them."
