Sanctuary pleased by successful prosecution for donkey-cruelty
PRESS RELEASE from The Donkey Sanctuary
3 November 11

International animal welfare charity The Donkey Sanctuary is pleased by the successful prosecution of Graham Gott from Slaidburn, Lancashire, at Hyndburn Magistrates Court on 2 November 2011, for causing neglect and suffering to a large group of animals including nine donkeys.

Mr Gott was found guilty of three Section 9 Animal Welfare Act offences and found to be in breach of an earlier disqualification from keeping horses, sheep and cattle to which he was sentenced in 2006. No custodial sentence was enforced due to Mr Gott’s poor health, but he was sentenced to a complete ban on keeping any animals for ten years and ordered to pay £4,000 costs.

The news is welcomed by the charity, who rescued the seven surviving donkeys from his property in cooperation with Trading Standards and the RSPCA in December 2010.

Molly Lloyd has been a regional welfare officer for the charity for the past 18 years. She says: “This was one of the worst cases of neglect I’ve seen. We were shocked to discover many animals at Mr Gott’s farm, including two dead donkeys and seven others who were gravely ill. We were lucky to get there when we did; one of the donkeys was carried onto the lorry as she was so weak. I am really pleased to be here today to see justice done for the donkeys who suffered so terribly under the care of Mr Gott.”

Anna Harrison is the Sanctuary’s veterinary surgeon for welfare cases like this. She adds: “On the rescue day, it was obvious that these donkeys, including a young foal, were depressed and some were emaciated, their skin tightly bound over their bones. Their hooves were cruelly twisted and overgrown. There had been heavy snow fall and there was no shelter, frozen water and no food. They were slowly starving to death in one of the most severe winters we have experienced in recent years.”

The donkeys, subsequently named by Sanctuary staff as Beauty, Chrissy, Eric, Florence, Little Lad, Mary and Prince were taken straight to The Donkey Sanctuary’s headquarters in Sidmouth, Devon on 7th December 2010, where the charity provides expert care and permanent refuge to thousands of donkeys.

Unfortunately Mary and Chrissy never recovered from their neglect and were kindly put to sleep by the Sanctuary’s veterinary team to end their suffering.

Anna adds: “It is totally unacceptable for any animal to be subjected to this extreme level of suffering. Any reasonably competent owner would have seen that the donkeys were in a suffering state and should have taken action. We’re glad to be able to provide a sanctuary for life to the surviving donkeys and are pleased that Mr Gott has been successfully prosecuted.”
