PUP JUSTICE: Dog abusers max sentence increases from six months to five years as Ricky Gervais says ‘justice finally served’
RICKY Gervais said “justice is finally served” after the maximum sentence for animal abusers today increased from six months to five years. The TV star hailed the tough new cruelty bill after a four-year campaign by Britain’s biggest animal charity Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
From now on, anyone who could even think to inflict harm on an innocent animal needs to know they could be serving a lengthy prison sentence.
Thanks to Battersea, justice will finally be served to anyone who perpetuates animal cruelty and a proper punishment brought in. The U.S. Sun

Between 9 January 2020 and 9 April 2020 the man was reported by neighbors and given a 12-week jail sentence as well as being banned from keeping animals for life.
The RSPCA visited him on 9 April and found his crossbreed terrier Barney (the dog) was possibly close to death with "no body fat" and weighed 10.5lbs.
RSPCA Inspector Marie Griffiths of Avon and Somerset Police said: "Barney was totally emaciated with no body fat present at all. His ribs, spine and pelvic bones were very visible, and the sockets behind his eyes were sunken. His coat was dull and he appeared lethargic and depressed."
He also said Barney had been deprived of a proper diet and veterinary care for several months.
Barney has since recovered and was enjoying life in a new home!
