|RSPCA TAKE OUT ANOTHER COMPETITOR|
AND INTIMIDATE YET ANOTHER PENSIONER
RSPCA officers had to raid an ANIMAL SANCTUARY to rescue dogs, horses and cats.
Cops and RSPCA officers found more than 50 animals after swooping on the property following a tip off from a local bobby.
The co-ordinated raid took place at St Francis Animal Sanctuary near Hatfield, Herts.
Police and the RSPCA executed a warrant on Tuesday under the Animal Welfare Act.
They took vets along with them to check over and treat the emaciated horses, geese, sheep, goats and cats as well as dogs.
The four-acre site had been run for the past 30 years by Fred Brimley, who is in his 80s.
Mr Brimley protested: "I'm just here for the animals."
But outraged RSPCA inspector Kirsty Hampton said: "They shouldn't be allowed to live in their own faeces."

The animals were taken to nearby Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms to be looked after while their futures are decided by RSPCA chiefs.
