Dog left tied up with washing line

By Amanda MacMillan

A DOG who was cruelly left tied to a tree with a washing line could have died in the freezing conditions – say an animal welfare charity.

The staffordshire bull terrier, who has been named Rex by Scottish SPCA staff, was left near a quiet footpath in Bathgate with the line tied around his neck.

The charity was called by a local dog warden to collect the abandoned dog on Monday.

SSPCA inspector Jenni Surgeon said that it was luck that the dog was found: “The dog had been abandoned in a quiet area so it was lucky that someone spotted him when they did, otherwise he could have perished in the freezing conditions.

“The washing line was tied directly round his neck rather than attached to a collar, which could have seriously harmed him if he hadn’t been found. It could have got tighter and tighter and caused injury. Continue reading

By Paul Thornton

A MAN has had his dog seized after he was caught having sex with the animal in two video clips.

Police and Scottish SPCA officers seized the Staffordshire bull terrier from John Kerr, 30, after two recordings of him performing sex acts with the animal were handed to cops.

A friend of Kerr’s had found the clips on a mobile telephone which had been left at his flat.

After showing the movies to the dog’s previous owner, the friend handed over the phone to police who then charged Kerr with having unnatural connections with an animal.

During the police interview Kerr made full confessions and today (Tuesday) at Edinburgh Sheriff Court he pleaded guilty to having unnatural connections with a dog at a flat in the Capital’s Kirk Street.

He also admitted a charge of acting in a disorderly manner and committing a breach of the peace by allowing the animal to lick his private parts while he performed a sex act on himself.
