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?

RSPCA loses court appeal against £2.35m will ruling

Charity failed to reverse high court decision that overturned a will leaving them a 287-acre farm in north Yorkshire

Congratulations to Christine Gill and may those money grabbing fraudsters at the RSPCA now leave her alone in peace

The RSPCA has lost a court of appeal challenge against a ruling thatoverturned a will leaving them a £2.35m farmhouse and land in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

University lecturer Christine Gill, 59, an only child, had won a high court battle to overturn her parents' will that left their 287-acre farm to the charity, after claiming her "domineering" father coerced her mother into making it.

Gill said in a statement: "It was a matter of huge regret and disappointment to me and my family that the RSPCA chose not to accept the original decision, forcing us to endure another court hearing."

She added: "We can now settle back into our lives on the family farm that I love, and which I have dedicated many years to maintaining."

Before the appeal, a number of charities said they were "very concerned at its possible implications for the charity sector".

Wonder who is picking up the tab for the courts costs.

£120m in a year in donations and still scrounging. Remember that this money does not go the the branches, which are all independent franchised businesses responsible for their own fundraising

Remember that in 2009 the RSPCA killed a total of 63,000 animals - a rise of over 3000 on the previous year. Nice to know how your donations are spent
