This is what happened with the police investigation into the alleged cruelty of the RSPCA dead bolt gunning dogs.
Enquiry re German Shepherd Dogs 24th June 2009 – Swansea
Thank you for your interest and correspondence regarding the above case. I am now in a position to update you that South Wales Police conducted a full and thorough investigation into the above subject matter and allegations surrounding it. This was completed comprehensively and expeditiously by a dedicated team of officers lead by a Senior Detective. As a result a full file of evidence was submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service requesting their advice.
The Crown Prosecution Service carefully considered the evidence presented in this case and concluded that there was not a realistic proposition of conviction in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors. The District Crown Prosecutor for Swansea and Chief Crown Prosecutor for South Wales also considered the file and were in full agreement with the decision to take no further action.
I appreciate you will be disappointed with this decision but may I reassure you that this case was treated with the highest priority and no recommendations were submitted by South Wales Police and the file solely focused on evidence available.

Now I read this as that the Crown Prosecution has not said this was wrong or illegal, it just said with the evidence presented it could not realistically prosecute. Are we all happy to let this go on? If not like me sit and email 2 letters a night to MPs. media or RSPCA themselves. http://www.freewebs.com/manytearsrescue/rspca.htm
