Dead dogs found in wheelbarrow during RSPCA raid at farm in Tyersal, Bradford

SEVEN puppies - six of them dead - were found “piled” up in a wheelbarrow at a farm in Bradford, an animal cruelty trial was told yesterday.
RSPCA Inspector Emma Ellis told Leeds Magistrates' Court that a colleague noticed that one of the Collie-type animals - which was under two carcasses - was still breathing.
The court was told the puppy later died despite being rushed to a veterinary surgery. Rigor mortis had set in on some of the puppies, the court heard.
Julie Nunney, 54, and Bernadette Nunney, 24, both of Tyersal House Farm, Tyersal Lane, deny four charges each of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and two each of failing to ensure the needs of animals for which they were responsible.


John Wilcock, 35, of Tyersal House Farm, Tyersal Lane, has pleaded guilty to the same six charges faced by Julie Nunney and Bernadette Nunney.
Iain O’Donnell, prosecuting for the RSPCA, told the court that police and inspectors from the charity executed a warrant at the farm at about 9.20am on September 24 last year.
The RSPCA seized 43 dogs from the premises, the court heard. Thirty-seven of them related to the charges in court.
The court was shown video footage filmed at the farm by RSPCA Inspector Nikki Cheetham. It showed the puppies in the wheelbarrow, including the one still breathing.
It also showed the red-brick stables-turned-kennels that some of the dogs were being kept in.
She filmed five “subdued” tiny puppies, some of them drinking from a puddle.
