Despite the suffering this causes to animals, the maximum sentence is six months in prison and/or an unlimited fine. Please write to your MP and urge them to increase the sentence to five years, to deter people from subjecting animals to this cruelty:

Our flood rescue teams are on high alert as storm surges threaten to hit the east coast of the UK.
People in at risk areas are advised to move their animals to a place of safety, whether that's moving horses and farm animals to higher ground, or bringing smaller outdoor pets inside. It’s also wise to get pet carriers ready for any smaller animals, like cats, and have some supplies of food...

A lady in Norfolk got quite a surprise when she spotted this little grey seal in her garden!

We believe he had swum inland from the sea along the River Glaven, just a few hundred metres from the garden where he was found. Luckily, he was in very good condition and we managed to release him back into the sea, with the lady filming his return: [ Link ]
