Wigan Cruelty couple face jail

WIGAN couple whose cat was found with its skull, neck and pelvis shattered have been warned they face a possible prison term for animal cruelty.

Keith Peters and Riann Michelle Victoria Rice will now appear before Wigan and Leigh magistrates later this month for sentencing after all-option social inquiry reports have been prepared.

The Presiding Magistrate warned: “We are considering a custodial sentence.”

Tony Stock, prosecuting on behalf of the RSPCA, said that Inspector Louise Showering called at their Woolton Close home in Ashton late one evening after receiving a phone call from a concerned member of the public about the pair’s pet short-haired domestic white and tortoiseshell she cat, Skittles.

She found the cat collapsed and lying on its side in what appeared to be in a “state of shock” and visibly unable to stand.
