Breeders 'cruel' to Cocker Spaniel

ROGER STONE, 62, and Lee Cox, 29 (Vanitonia) of the Kaston Kennels, Mark, Somerset received a three year conditional discharge and were ordered to pay 5000 costs after being found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to a Cocker Spaniel in their care.

The cocker suffered a chronic ear infection which resulted in amputation.

The case was heard last Monday at Cheddar Magistrates' Court.
