Farming family guilty of 'grotesque' cruelty

In 2008 the RSPCA found 115 horses, ponies and donkeys in Spindle Farm, Buckinghamshire; 32 of them were dead. Most animals were sick and hadn't been fed for a long time.

The family responsible for this animal cruelty was found guilty. The family exists of James Gray, 45, and his son James Junior, 16; they have been charged with 11 allegations. His wife Julie, 41, and daughters Jodie, 26, and Cordelia, 20 have been charged with 2 allegations.

Paul Jepson, chief executive and resident veterinary surgeon of the Horse Trust says that most of the animals, which were rescued, have regained health.


I think it is ridiculous that people are harming animals! Why on earth are they doing this! If they cannot take the responsibility of taking care of animals, then why have them in the first place! And why have children? They are also a big responsibility!

This case is one of the worst cases the RSPCA has ever seen. I am glad the whole family was found guilty, but I feel they should have gotten a higher punishment! They should be put in a stable without food and with all kinds of diseases. Let’s see how they feel then!

  1. I think you are totally right that they should have put this family in a stable without food or water. Let them suffer like they did to those poor animals. How can people be so cruel. The punishments are so incredibly mild and I think they should change the law to make life a lot saver for animals. I read an article about a man that raped a horse, but they didn’t do anything, because there’s no law that says you’re not allowed to do that. It makes me furious to see that people neglect animals so terribly that they even found 32 dead beast. So I agree with you that they should put these people in a stable and neglect them so they can feel what they have done.
